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