African Americans have been part of the Vallejo mosaic since 1850, the year of the North Bay city s birth. John Grider, a Tennessee native and former slave who arrived in Vallejo in 1850, was one of the city s earliest residents and a veteran of the California Bear Flag Revolt of 1846. While many 19th-century black pioneers established homes, businesses, and schools, it was during the Great Migration period of 1910 1970s that the bulk of Vallejo s black community took firm root. During this period, black folks from throughout the South tiny towns and big cities alike, from places like Itasca, Texas: Heidelberg, Mississippi: Little Rock, Arkansas: and Lake Wales, Florida made their way west searching for war-industry jobs at Mare Island Naval Shipyard and lives relatively free of unrelenting racial discord. African Americans in Vallejo chronicles this proud and oftentimes complicated journey.'
