East Oakland youth share stories of resistance and resilience

Feb 26, 2018

In the fall of 2017, KALW and East Oakland Youth Development Center teamed up to present a series of audio storytelling workshops for East Oakland youth. Taught by KALW reporter Eli Wirtschafter and Snap Judgment producer Adizah Egan, the students learned the basics of audio storytelling and created their own pieces, which you can listen to below.
