            Well it was stated on a website by DR.
KWaku PErson Lynn, these California facts:
  •          44 people who founded the City of Los Angeles,
  •        26 of them were African descent.
  •       What is not taught in California schools is that majority of  the founders of  San Francisco, San Jose and San Diego were  of Afrikan descent. Also, Orange County, Beverly Hills,
and Malibu were once owned by people
of Afrikan descent. ( I wonder what other interestings
I should know about Black history. Well I’ll find
out soon enough! I’m going to study everything black history)
            The state of California got its name from
mythical Black Queen Califia.
          (Califia, Califia, it has a ring to it) The Picos are known
as Black Brothers who speak  Spanish.
           
   The genesis of the name begins with a story read
by Spanish  explorer Hernando Cortez.
           The island has:
  •   bold and croggy rocks.
  • weapons  composed out of gold.
  • gold and precious stones.
  •          Queen Califia – ruled the island.
  •           John William Templeton, California historian and  author of the four set Volume set “Our Roots Run Deep: The Black Experience in California. Templeton started his journey of searching the history of California through a conversation with a San Francisco Radio Host.
