Join us for a dynamic, youth-driven day of programming about our swiftly transforming city and the role of local history and memory.
Programming will include:
- sidewalk interviews
- spoken word performance
- a youth panel discussion highlighting the voices of Youth Beat journalists, Oakland Library Youth Poet Laureates and participants of Beat Within
- zine making
It will all happen on vibrant staging created by marksearch to contextualizes the conversations.
