Oakland chimes in on Griot’s first Door-to-Door

Inside the Chapel of the Chimes

Our first Door-to-Door in Oakland was hosted by the Chapel of the Chimes, a crematory and columbarium nearly 100 years old. In addition to providing cremation services and bereavement programs to the Bay Area, Chapel of the Chimes is also a prime venue for theater and musical performances.

Harold Logwood, StoryCorps Griot’s first Oakland D2D storyteller, is a former attorney and Oakland resident. This week Harold shared his trials of becoming a lawyer in the 1970s and his memories of Oakland’s historic McClymonds High School.
