As Eric the Trainer did for us last year, we are doing it again. Providing an Anti-Asian Hate Day with a Stun Device give away to the Asian American community (but not limited to). For those who need that special help to deter an attacker, the museum is providing free devices to help secure the safety of our seniors. (The museum has the right to determine if the device is available to everyone). There is a required 20-minute class at the museum to show you how to operate it, plus you will need to sign a release.

In the 1970s, Sammy Pace was one of the premier fighters on the tournament circuit. A member of the Black Karate Federation (BKF), Sammy tore up the competition and won championship after championship. But Sammy had another passion as well, art. Through the years, Sammy became known as one of the most-after artists in the world. His work has appeared throughout the Rapid Transit Authority, public events, the Playboy Jazz Festival, the Watts Tower Festival, and many more. He has done artwork for such notables as Nancy Wilson, Poncho Sanchez, Eddie Palmarie, and more. This will be a spectacular evening as his artwork will be spread around the museum, plus a time on stage with a one-on-one Q&A talk about his work and to top it off, an auctioning of one of his pieces to support the museum.
