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: “New Documentary Focuses on West Oakland’s Blues Legacy

It actually is a group of people who led us to the musicians we interviewed. We didn't get to all, there was a ton of talent and you seem to be among those - Bob Geddings Jr is in the film as is Wylie Trass, Johnny Talbert is mentioned and so many more. But you are right, not everyone is in it but this film gets a conversation started. I hope you get to see the film, R Mack.

Re: “Restoring 'Rainbow Black'

We are excited that Ishmael Reed (winner of the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship [genius award], the renowned L.A. Times Robert Kirsch Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Award, who was nominated for a Pulitzer and is Professor Emeritus at the UC Berkeley; and also the founder of Before Columbus Foundation) along with Carl Mack (Retired Superintendent Del Paso Heights School District; Currently Associate Professor, CSPP, Alliant International University) will both participate in a panel discussion following the screening. Filmmaker, Cheryl Fabio will be on hand.

The organizers are delighted to introduce to Oakland, Shomari "Issa" Jackson of Sacramento, grandson of Sarah Fabio, who performs spoken word.

Tickets are still available on Eventbrite, and a few at the door!
