About

Black Silicon Valley Has Your Back!

The Black Bay Area Calendar is a collaborative project between the Silicon Valley Alphas and Blacklist. The purpose of the initiative is to provide an integrated collection of all Black-relevant events across Northern California to enable our community to better network, collaborate, and orient our inspiring professionals and entrepreneurs. You are not alone in Silicon Valley – we got you!

Network Easier

Don’t worry about needing to find which events to attend, or which groups of people to find. The Black Bay Area calendar hosts events in every area of Black Life, from activism to entrepreneurship.

Publish Events

Have an organization that you want to market to the broader Black Bay community? Send us your calendar! We love adding events to the calendar and all events are automatically sent to our entire mailing list.

Hustle Harder

The great thing of having the Black Bay’s events laid out and ready to take advantage is that it fuels your opportunity to HUSTLE HARDER.
