51st and Telegraph: Lend your voice to our African-American stories project.

on June 19, 2009

Help Us Tell the Story of African-American Migration to North Oakland!

  • Did you grow up in North Oakland?
  • Do you work in the neighborhood?
  • Shop there?

Bring a friend or loved one who settled in Temescal in years past and interview them in our story booth in the neighborhood.

•What have you always wanted to know about your friend or loved one?
•What was the neighborhood like back in the day?
•What should future generations know about African-American life in Temescal?

We’ll record your interview, take your picture, and place selected stories on our website, to be launched mid-August.

Saturday, July 11: 1pm – 4:30pm
Monday, July 13: 4pm-7:30pm

Call 510-495-7696 to reserve a 30-minute slot for you and your interview partner.

Leave your name, phone number, and the time you want to come in for your interview on our voice mail. We’ll call you back to schedule an appointment. Call now – spaces are filling up quickly!

You get:
• a copy of your interview on CD or MP3
• a photo of you and your loved one
• a chance to preserve the neighborhood’s history as a part of Intersections, a News 21 project:
