The Stoop is launching soon! Hosted by KALW journalists Hana Baba and Leila Day, the podcast features stories and conversations about blackness that aren’t always shared in the open.
Here’s a sneak peek into a upcoming episode- the hosts visit Oakland poet and playwright, Chinaka Hodge. On her front stoop in West Oakland, they talk about voice, performance, and being told — as a black person — that you "sound white." Hodge has some answers for THAT question.
