Unheard LA: Join Us For A Deeper Listen On Stories That Need To Be Heard

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

As the nation reckons with systemic racism, our community-centered storytelling show Unheard LA is taking a deeper listen.

Unheard LA was built on a simple premise: that while many stories go untold, even more go unheard. Now we’re doubling down on listening. Please join us for a special virtual edition of the 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 our newroom's Race In LA initiative.

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

Watch and engage with us live right here, at the top of this page at 6 p.m. You can also view on Livestream and Facebook Live (you don’t need a Facebook account).
