Four Oakland Voices correspondents were awarded the prestigious Society of Professional Journalists’ community journalism award for radio/audio for a series of articles about East Oakland artists. The program, called The Sights and Sounds of East Oakland, was produced in collaboration with KALW public radio station.

Angela Scott won for a piece about Eastside Arts Alliance’s program to train young graffiti artists; Sabah Williams won for a story about Yaelisa, a Flamenco dancer, and her East Oakland studio; Aqueila Lewis won for a piece that used her talent as a performance artist to tell the story of her grandmother’s displacement from East Oakland and Bill Joyce won for his story about  Laila Espinoza and her project to create art outdoors — a mural of Our Lady of Guadalupe depicted as a mermaid at a tennis court.

The correspondents worked with KALW journalists and editors to create their radio stories, including Hannah Kingsley-Ma, Liza Veale, Jeremy Dalmas and Holly McDede.

The stories  can be heard here: http://kalw.org/term/sights-sounds-east-oakland#stream/0. The stories also ran in print versions published on the Oakland Voices website oaklandvoices.us.

Oakland Voices is a community journalism program that trains community residents to find and tell the stories of their neighborhoods, which are posted on the Oakland Voices website oaklandvoices.us.
