The Colored Voters Political Club was the first Black political club in San Diego. Between 1885 and 1990, San Diego’s Black population rose dramatically, though it was still less than one percent of the population. With this increase in numbers, Black San Diegans came together to form groups in which they could share and express themselves in ways which were not permitted in a predominately white setting.
