Shyra Gums grew up in Oakland and she’s a participant in Remix You Life an arts program run by Youth Radio.

Gums sent us this poem which she calls “Gumbo” relating her home city of Oakland to a family recipe for gumbo which combines lots of different ingredients.

 
This piece was produced by Youth Radio in Oakland, CA with sound design by James Rowlands.
