Unheard LA - A Deeper Listen (Part 2)

Thursday, July 23, 2020, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

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 23, we put the stories of Cheryl Farrell, Aeden K, and Steady’s Eddy M Gana, Jr. and Stephanie Sajor 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 L.A., also joined us for a live conversation.

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