Oakland Murals Honor Black Lives / Black At Albany / Movie Theaters Struggle To Survive

Oct 7, 2020

Some of the most powerful art in Oakland isn’t on a canvas in a gallery, it’s on plywood covering store windows — and many of these temporary murals honor the memories of Black people killed by police. We find out what will happen to the art when the plywood comes down. Then, we hear about an instagram account that chronicles experiences of racism at a Bay Area high school. And, we meet a man who is working to keep a movie theater alive during the pandemic.
