San Mateo County Event Center Proudly Serves as Fiscal Agent for the New Historical Exhibit.
REDWOOD CITY, CA — February 2, 2024 — The Domini Hoskins Black History Museum and Learning Center opened its doors on Friday, February 2, 2024, marking another milestone for Carolyn Hoskins and the start of Black History Month. The Museum and Learning Center currently located at 890 Jefferson Ave, Redwood City, hopes to secure this location and create a vibrant space for education, celebration, and reflection year-round as a cultural landmark.
The grand opening ceremony was attended by Senator Becker, County Supervisors Mueller and Canepa, and other community leaders, supporters, and esteemed guests who were able to see Senator Becker present Carolyn Hoskins with a $2 million check that will go toward a more permanent location and hopefully will allow the 890 Jefferson address to become the year-round site for the museum and learning center.
