Delilah Beasley House

Upon Delilah Beasley's arrival to the East Bay from the Midwest in around 1910, she quickly realized that the last generation of “negro pioneers” from the Gold Rush era was dying out and that nobody had recorded their stories. She spent nearly a decade researching the history of African Americans in California and telling stories of Black life from her home in Hoover-Foster. Learn more about her story on the tour.
