Full Circle 5-24-19 … #MayDay

 

Tonight, we bring you sounds from May Day celebrations around Oakland. The First Voice Apprenticeship Program was there as part of a special collaboration with Work Week Radio and Brightpath Video.

On tonight’s show …

  • We’ll learn about May Day … a truly American holiday
  • Then we’ll share audio from the Port of Oakland and Oscar Grant Plaza
  • And we’ll let you know how you can check out the entire video broadcast and other May Day videos from the Bay Area and around the world
  • And, near the end of the show, we’ll get a special update on the exhibit, New Mestizx, which opens tonight (5/24), at Acción Latina in San Francisco

All that tonight on Full Circle.
