Pulling double duty at Eastmont Computing Center
Committed to adult and family education, the Eastmont Computing Center provides computer classes and Internet access to Oakland’s senior community, as well as after-school programs for kids. Two days of field recording at the ECC made for an excellent halfway mark in StoryCorps Griot’s Oakland tour stop.
A local institution herself, Unav Wade served as Oakland’s NAACP Chapter President for fifteen years. Driven by love for her own family’s well-being, Unav worked to achieve equality for Blacks in the workplace and for their children’s opportunities for success in the classroom.
