Re: “KPFA

When African Americans migrated from the South seeking relief from Jim Crow and better opportunities, they carried The Blues with them. A vibrant culture was established in West Oakland, California, that's steeped in the traditions of Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Louisiana. EVOLUTIONARY BLUESWest Oaklands Music Legacy, directed by filmmaker Cheryl Fabio features Isabel Wilkerson, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and author - as well as iconic musicians of then and now. The film is showing Wednesday, September 27th at 7 pm, Grand Lake Theatre, 3200 Grand Avenue, Oakland. While the 7 pm screening has SOLD OUT, the theatre just added a second show at 10:00 pm also on 9/27, tickets $12 at the door.

Re: “YMCA

Pilates classes with Sue Jamison are excellent.
She is very knowledgeable about health and fitness. She is very unique in the way that she directs her classes, any way at the end you will have a combination of exercises that not only are good for your body and mind, but also are beautiful.
After class you will feel peaceful, rested, and happy

Re: “Lake Merritt

Whether alone or with a friend, this is a sweet, beautiful and serene place to get away and relax. Enjoy the beauty of the Japanese Koi Ponds, the bigger ponds & waterfall, the Bonsai Garden, the heavenly Sensory garden where you can feel & smell wonderful herbs, the Vegetable gardens where you can meet & learn from the various gardeners (you too can have a plot of your own), the Rose garden with all that blooming beauty, the Butterfly garden planted to attract three different species of butterflies and the new Bee Hotel designed to attract bees to pollinate the gardens. A truly wonderful place for family & friends...

Re: “Tibetan Nyingma Institute

Great place to experience meditation and to explore it further. Classes in psychology, Buddhist studies, Tibetan, Tibetan Yoga, and, of course, meditation. Something for everyone, no matter what kind of orientation to self and the world. Peaceful meditation garden with giant prayer wheel is open to public whenever they are open.
