Unheard LA - A Deeper Listen (Part 1)

06:00 PM - 07:00 PM on Thu, Jul 16, 2020
Virtual/Online
Free

Unheard LA was built on a simple premise: that while many stories go untold, even more go unheard. As the nation reckons with its long history of systemic racism, we’re doubling down on listening. Please join us for a special virtual edition of Unheard LA, the community-centered storytelling series produced by KPCC/LAist.

Reflections on the ways in which racism has shaped lives and experiences in Southern California have been a signature part of Unheard LA since our very first show, back in 2017. And these stories are worth a second and deeper listen. That’s why we’re presenting a series of curated virtual shows, hosted by Bruce Lemon Jr., and featuring stories and live conversations with participants — all in collaboration with KPCC/LAist’s Race In LA initiative.

On Thursday, July 16, we put the stories of Candace Nicholas-Lippman, Dante Mitchell, and Janae Williams center stage once again (this time virtually) as they shared their personal and authentic accounts of life here in Southern California. Dana Amihere, co-editor and developer of Race In LA also joined us for a live conversation.

Watch the archive video right here, at the top of this page. You can also view on Facebook Live (you don’t need a Facebook account).

Unheard LA is funded in part by a grant from The California Wellness Foundation.
