6th Annual Delilah Beasley TeaSunday, September 17, 2017
On Sunday, September 17th, 2017 Progressive Oakland Women for Empowerment & Reform (POWER) will hold their 6th Annual Delilah Beasley tea at 4 p.m. in the Pardee Home Museum gardens.
The annual tea is celebrated in memory of Delilah Beasley (1871-1934), a former newspaper columnist for the Oakland Tribune and the first African American woman to be published regularly in a major metropolitan newspaper. As a historian, Ms. Beasley's works remain among the critical sources for both black California and African American women's history to this day. She was also a longtime local activist who fought for integration in every level of civic and social life, including helping to spearhead California's first anti-lynching bill.
The tea affords POWER and the community the opportunity to honor and celebrate extraordinary Oakland citizens and institutions whose vision and leadership inspire, enrich, transform and empower our communities. This year Alameda District Attorney, Nancy O'Malley is being honored. Ms O'Malley, is a nationally recognized expert in human trafficking, sexual assault, and domestic violence. Recently she was the first District Attorney in the nation to receive the American Bar Association's Margaret Brent Award for professional excellence and for advancing opportunities for women in the legal profession.
The Pardee House Museum gardens provide a delightful setting for an elegant tea accompanied by live music, and sumptuous pastries and savories on what promises to be an unforgettable late summer afternoon. Attendees will connect with neighbors, friends, and activists who make Oakland such a special place.
Admission - $35
