Healing Justice SB is proud to announce Black is Beautiful Showcase. We have come together with local black community leaders, professionals, and artists to highlight an array of Black Excellence. This month’s Black History Month theme is the Black Family: diversity, identity, and representation. We recognize that elevating the Black artists and its community to share Black culture, Black joy, and Black history is for collective healing. We are honored to share Santa Barbara’s Black History, past and present with a Historical tour of Black Santa Barbara and the wonderful contribution the Black community gave to our society.

The “Black is Beautiful” virtual showcase, Friday 2/26 at 5pm, is an opportunity for cultural and artistic expression as well as educational and self-care programming.

Performances will include spoken word, painting, photography, music, and more. Plus, join us on a tour of Black Santa Barbara, CA history dating back 100 years.

This event is Sponsored by Juneteenth SB, Santa Barabra Bowl, Santa Barbara County Arts and Culture About Healing Justice SB

Healing Justice Santa Barbara aspires to uplift all Black/African-Americans to affirm that they are deserving of safety, love, equity, respect, and joy.

Healing Justice SB is a Black led and Black centered organizing collective in Santa Barbara County. Formed in response to the de-stabilizing impacts of racism and anti-blackness, Healing Justice SB aspires to build resilient communities for the African diaspora and other marginalized people along the Central Coast. The collective understands that collective healing and liberation is essential to creating a more equitable Santa Barbara; therefore they center, uplift, and meaningfully create space that empowers ALL Black people including Black LGBTQ+ people, Black people with disabilities, undocumented Black people, underserved Black people and Black people that speak in African American Vernacular English. In keeping with the principles of a healing justice framework, Healing Justice SB demands that self-care be reimagined as a collective investment in community care. The collective’s goals include providing a Black/African-American Cultural Resource Center, celebrating and funding the Arts, Public Safety, Support for Our Youth in Education, Environmental Justice and Sustainability, Outreach, and Meaningful Collaborations.
