Join for the second annual book release of oral histories and heritage stories from Oakland youth. In Past is Present vol. II, a group of 10th graders from MetWest High School delve into their family stories of migration and immigration to craft narratives of resilience and resistance.
Come celebrate these students' stories with family and community. Along with readings from the students and educators, there will be fresh tacos served up by Two Mamacitas and equally fresh tunes spun by DJ XCAIROCITOSX!
Family friendly fun through tiny book making in the space all night. Grab your copy of our newest anthology and don't forget to get it signed by some of our brilliant student authors!
