Tales of Two Cities Podcast: Remembering and Forgetting
on November 5, 2018
In this episode of “Tale of Two Cities,” we explore forgotten areas of the Easy Bay and how people are working to keep their traditions and memories alive.
From reporter Cecilia Lei, we hear about how volunteers are helping to save neglected, stray dogs in Richmond. Next, reporter Betty Marquez Rosales and sound engineer Rosa Amanda Tuiran take us to Corazón del Pueblo, a non-profit center in Oakland where visitors remember Dia de los Muertos during sugar skull workshops. Lastly, hosts Annie Berman and Carla Williams interview Jodie Geddes, a community organizing coordinator at Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth, about her efforts to shift the focus of justice from punishment to healing.
