Oakland: A Struggle to Be Heard
This podcast features local residents recalling the controversial history of redevelopment, where eminent domain abuse by public agencies in the 1950s and 60s resulted in the demolition of entire neighborhoods. It also showcases a recent effort in Oakland in which the local redevelopment agency supported a community-led project to bring healthy food to the neighborhood.
