Listen to this story
Oakland, California, is arguably one of the most important cities to the Black community in America. Everything from it being the birthplace of the Black Panthers to the Black excellence seen and experienced in the booming tech scene.
Black excellence and the power of the community runs through the veins of this city, and it was a privilege to be able to capture it all. Although there are too many people to thank, I want to thank the city of Oakland for giving my Passport Heavy team and me the opportunity to help tell the story of your city through the voices of your community.
Expect to see part two of the documentary in a few months, but for now, I hope you enjoy part 1 of Discovering: Oakland, California.
