CHICO, Calif. - Saturday a celebration was held for Women's History Month in Chico that held a spotlight on women of the African diaspora.

The African diaspora is the term used to describe the dispersal of African people to Asia, Europe, and the Americas. The term is primarily used to describe the coerced movement from the slave trade. The word diaspora has also been used to refer to voluntary migrations from Africa, and even for movements of population inside of Africa.

The event was held at the Chico Women's Club to honor African American women in the North State and throughout the world.

It was called "Near and Far, Past and Present."
