 Our Featured Guests

1. Sydni Davenport shares the early history of African Americans in Sonoma County as she recounts her family’s history.  Her grandmother moved from Texas to Petaluma in 1953,  when only a couple of Black families resided in the county, and that year she began the first Juneteenth Celebration at her Petaluma ranch for family and friends. Juneteenth marks the commemoration of the 2-year delayed announcement of emancipation in Galveston, Texas, a former slave state, on June 19th,1865. That commemoration day was introduced to Sonoma County by Sydni’s grandmother Marteal Perry. Since Blacks in Petaluma were forbidden to swim in the public pool, her grandmother had a swimming pool built on her ranch, which drew a protest by the local KKK. In 1970 the Juneteenth Celebration was moved to Martin Luther King, jr, Park in Santa Rosa as a joint celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and of Juneteenth. Sydni will perform with the Frresh Apple Singers at the Juneteenth Celebration in Santa Rosa on Saturday June 15th.

About our Guest:  Sydni Davenport is a board of the Juneteenth Festival and member of the Sonoma County NAACP and the Sonoma County CHANCE horse rescue. A native of Sonoma County she is the first Grand Child of Evangelist Marteal Perry. She is a member of the Gospel Group, The Prayer Chapel Singers, The group just released their first Single called, “God’s got it which Sydni wrote. She describes herself as a country girl at heart and love cowboy boots. She is a mother, grandmother and wife and has been married for 30 years to a wonderful partner she loves to be outdoors and garden. For the past 20 years she has been a foster parent for the mentally ill.

2.  Sena Kubega talks about her first knowledge of the slavery came through visiting the slave castle in her home town of Cape Coast, Ghana in West Africa, where Africans kidnapped from their homes began their slave experience awaiting their voyage to the slave colonies of North America.  While touring with her mother Adwoa Kudoto, the award winning and only female master drummer of Ghana, Sena was able to realize the reach of slavery’s tennacles in the new land and saw the Juneteenth Celebration as a means to educate future generations on the horrors and demoralization of slavery. Sena will perform with her Drum Ghana and Dance Ensemble at the Juneteenth Celebration in Santa Rosa on Saturday June 15th.

About our Guest:  Sena Kubega is from Cape Coast, Ghana, (West Africa) and has been dancing since she was 7 years old. As a young girl growing up, she always knew what she wanted to do. Growing up she was inspired and encouraged by her mother, an award winning and only female master drummer in Ghana Adwoa Kudoto who travelled throughout the US teaching and performing in Washington, New York, Michigan, Atlanta and California. It was through her experience with her mother that her passion and abilities for drumming and dance blossomed. For her dancing requires one to be able to hear and have a conversation with the drummer. She also teaches drumming. Her motto is, Drum, Dance, Sing, Learn And Have Fun! Sena appreciates the quote: “Everything in the universe has rhythm, everything dances” ~Maya Angelou~

2.  Charlie Toledo shares her family history as members of the Towa People in New Mexico.  Charlie talks of her grandfather who was separated from his parents as a child and placed with a family as a servant against his will.  Her father was deprived of his native language and his native religion was replaced with Roman Catholicism.  Charlie recounts how she was then raised in that imposed religion until she rebelled in her teen years during the time of popular resistance to the Vietnam War as she helped young men resist the draft.  She would learn from her early political activism to apply her fervor to restoring indigenous people rights in the USA.  After her move to Napa County she reorganized the Suscol Intertribal Council in 1992 to make it a safe place to hold native ceremonies and a community center “to bring healing between the existing population and the people who historically inhabited Napa Valley and nearby counties.”  In 1995 Charlie attended the UN World Conference on Women which produced the Declaration of Indigenous Women. This led to the 2002 establishment of the Secretarial of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and to the 2007 UN Dedclaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

About our Guest:  Charlie Toledo is a descendant of the Towa People, a native to New Mexico. She is the Executive Director of the Suscol Intertribal Council, a community-based organization 501(c)3 incorporated in 1992, located in Napa, California. She has extensive experience as public speaker, presenter and community organizer in regional, statewide, national and international forums. Since 1986 worked in alternative healthcare fields, background in mediation consultation for individuals, families, and organizations. She has been an organic gardener since 1978. She has lifelong commitment to social justice and international work on Human Rights and Environmental social justice issues. Charlie is affiliated with Women’s Intercultural Network, with consultative status to the United Nations.See the numerous affiliations of Charlie Toledo at www.suscolcouncil.org/About.html
