The Dream Keeper Initiative
This celebration of Black Poet Laureates is funded in part by the City and County of San Francisco’s Dream Keeper Initiative managed by the Human Rights Commission headed by Executive Director Sheryl L. Davis. Mayor London Breed, Shaman Walton, President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and the entire Board of Supervisors’ historical precedent of reassigning a portion of funding of the Police and Sheriff Departments is intended to help break the cycle of overty and involvement in the criminal justice system of Black people in San Francisco.
Through music and live performances, the Soul of Pride Urban Global Village stage provides a welcoming and affirming space for Black/African Americans and People of Color during San Francisco’s Pride Celebration. Showcasing the racial and ethnic diversity of the LGBT community, the Soul of Pride Urban Global Village Stage features music from Black and Brown communities spanning from Asia to Latin America.
From 2009 through 2018, San Francisco’s Pride Celebration included Pink Saturday, one of the largest LGBT nighttime civic event in the western United States, attracting nearly 100,000 people. From 2009 through circa 2018, The Global Village stage was one of four performance stages at Pink Saturday. With the community’s decision to not move forward with Pink Saturday, the Global Village stage was integrated into the San Francisco Pride Civic Center festival site, sharing a stage with the Soul Of Pride African Diaspora Stage.
