Over the past several months I have had the pleasure of doing a few photo projects for my favorite public radio station, KALW, 91.7. The impressive events below are just a small sampling of what this listener-supported station accomplishes on a regular basis.

KALW brought Tavis Smiley and Cornel West to the beautiful Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California, in April 2012 to discuss their recent publication, “The Rich and the Rest of Us: A Poverty Manifesto.” The event also brought together local community groups addressing economic inequality and the difficulties of poverty here in the Bay Area. Photographing this event in a beautifully restored Art Deco theater was a real treat, and the photo set captured some of the energy at this community event.
