Malcolm X Jazz Festival

  • San Antonio Park Oakland, CA (map)

The Malcolm X Jazz Arts Festival is an all day, free neighborhood festival that celebrates jazz, America's classical music and the Black musical tradition that has transcended the U.S. to reach all corners of the globe, and the legacy of Malcolm X, who believed in the self-determination, self-respect and self-defense of Black and oppressed people throughout the world. This event is a celebration of our Third World communities in the San Antonio district and includes music, speakers, community organizations, local arts & crafts vendors, live mural painting and delicious food. 

The 19th Malcolm X Jazz Arts Festival is soon – May 19th, the actual date of Malcolm’s birthday 🎉🎈

We invite you to support our programs, including the Malcolm X Jazz Arts Festival, aimed at strengthening a social justice agenda that advances the vision and voice of the communities we serve. As Malcolm said, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
