Underground Books

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A book store in Oak Park has taken the time during the pandemic to remodel and expand – and now it’s back open.

Underground Books is operated by St. Hope, a family of neighborhood nonprofits dedicated to revitalizing Oak Park

The book store’s manager and operator has been with the store since its opening in 2003.

“We’re trying to bring art and culture to the community. There’s no library in this community, so we bring literacy and make it available for everyone,” said Georgia “Mother Rose” West.

Bonney Donates Headsets to PS7 Elementary Scholars

Imagine this: You are trying to listen to the instructions from your teacher on your laptop, the volume is all the way up, but you still can’t hear. You look around the room and all your brothers, sisters, even parents are trying to do the same. Add the fact that you are still trying to figure out how distance learning works. Sounds frustrating, doesn’t it?

Nothing quite says fall like hunkering down with a good book and comforting mug full of your preferred hot beverage. But no matter what it is you choose to read this season, consider picking it up from one of many Black-owned bookstores. Not only can spending your money mindfully help support Black businesses — and in turn encourage more of them — but because many of these shops specialize in books about race and culture specifically, shopping here might just inspire you to fill your fall reading list with resources that educate and inform you.

Oak Park Brewing’s newest is much more than a beer. It’s a Black history lesson
The Sacramento Bee 8.28.20

You know the story.

A pint hits the tap at Sacramento’s Oak Park Brewing. The liquid pours straw yellow; the head floating puffy, like a cloud. The first sip tastes like every beer that made Milwaukee famous, especially those from the 1970s heyday of Schlitz, Old Style and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Oak Park’s People’s Beer, which was canned this week and is being released Friday, is the next liquid chapter that flows from the confluence of the Black Civil Rights movement and the beer-brewing heart of the country.

Sac High Names Head to Mars

On Thursday July 30, 2020, NASA launched its most advanced rover to Mars. Back in 2019, as the Mars 2020 Rover, now renamed Perseverance, was in its testing phase of development, NASA called on the world to see who would want their names placed on the rover and travel 7 months to the red planet. Those participants would receive a boarding pass and accumulate Frequent Flyer Miles.

Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria Grand Opening in Oak Park

While Sacramento’s dining scene has been struggling with the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, there is a bright spot with this week’s opening of a new fast casual and gourmet pizza joint in Oak Park. Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria is a Nashville-based chain run by three childhood friends who dreamed up the concept inside an old garage in 2015. They spent two years testing pizza recipes in that garage and then launched their restaurant with great success. Their Oak Park grand opening marks their 5th location and is the latest Black-owned business to join the Oak Park resurgence.
