Historical Society programs for the community
Submitted By Hayward Area Historical Society
The Hayward Area Historical Society (HAHS) is sponsoring several community programs and exhibits in June at its Museum of History and Culture in Hayward:
¥ Toddler Time: Weather and the Seasons
Thursday, June 14, 10:30 a.m. Ð 11:30 a.m.
HAHS Museum of History & Culture, 22380 Foothill Blvd, Hayward
$5 suggested donation
The atmosphere is constantly changing and because of that we feel rain or shine, wind or snow, hot or cold. Bring your children to learn about the weather and the seasons with stories, crafts, and fun. Toddler Time is a family program geared toward children ages 1 to 5 and their caregivers. Older siblings are always welcome.
¥ McConaghy House Paranormal Investigation

¥ Loyal Americans: Japanese American Imprisonment During World War II
Continuing through Oct. 28
HAHS Museum of History & Culture, Special Gallery, 22380 Foothill Blvd, Hayward
Relocation. Evacuation. Internment. Imprisonment. Incarceration. These are all words used to describe the Japanese and Japanese American experience of World War II.
¥ Black and White in Black and White: Images of Dignity, Hope, and Diversity in America
June 23 through August 19
HAHS Museum of History & Culture, Community Gallery, 22380 Foothill Blvd, Hayward
In 1965, 16-year-old Doug Keister acquired 280 glass plate negatives, originally found at a local garage sale. He immediately made photographic prints revealing powerful, early 20th-century portraits of African Americans in Lincoln, Nebraska. The images in this traveling exhibition are attributed to African American photographer John Johnson.
