Re: “Supporting Historical, Black-Owned Businesses

Will the EastBay Express consider writing about the greater narrative of the black-owned business? We are more than 3 restaurants, a bookstore and a record shop.

After decades of university education (yes we have been in universities for decades). Oakland is home to Architects, Financial Advisors, Engineers, Doctors, etc. By repeatedly writing about the same 6 stores, you perpetuate the image that black people are no more than retail entertainment.

I hope with this note the East Bay Express will stop, take a look and truly write about us all. I for one am tired of weekly emails and comments for students and adults (black, white and in-between) who did not know there are black architects right here in Oakland, much less elsewhere. Just for starters google the LAX airport to learn about Paul R Williams, the 1st black architect in the US.

I want the East Bay Express to raise it's educational bar. As yourself why you are not aware of black professionals to the point where you assume we do not exist? Become curious. Then print another story about us, the wider narrative of black professionals.
