Alameda’s Black Achievers Alliance organized its second annual unity picnic, held today at Crab Cove, which included more than 100 residents gathering on the beach to form the word itself.

“It was important to me after founding the Black Achievers Alliance that we did not further segregate ourselves, so we decided to come together and create a Unity Picnic in the tradition of the big family reunions we have in the black community,” remarked Robbie Wilson, Founder and Chair of the AUSD Black Achievers Alliance Roundtable. “We want to empower the black community so they feel safe and part of this island, and events like the Unity Picnic allow people to connect with people that look different from themselves.”

Participating organizations at the Unity Picnic include the AUSD Black Achievers Alliance, City of Alameda, AUSD LGBTQ Roundtable, Alameda 4 Black Lives, Alameda All Faiths Coalition, Alameda Collaborative for Children, Youth, and their Families, Alameda Unified School District (AUSD), AUSD ALCANCE (Latino Achievement Round Table), Social Service Human Relations Board, ACLU People Power – Alameda, and Festival Productions.

Participants also dined together, and listened to poetry and music.
