SF Lives Live Talk:
Ericka Scott, Director of Projects with the African American Cultural District in conversation with journalist Denise Sullivan

Catch the live stream on Bird & Beckett’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. Tune in at 10am to watch it live, or watch anytime in the archive at the same links.

San Francisco journalist Denise Sullivan conducts a monthly series of conversations (the second Sunday of each month from 10-11 a.m.) with The City’s activists, educators, arts and cultural leaders and lesser-known workers, the everyday people who help make this place we call home, live streamed from Bird & Beckett Books.
