Writer Linda Norton and Peralta Hacienda are collaborating to document the effects of mass incarceration on the Fruitvale district and city of Oakland through “Home and Away.” Community members are invited to create this exhibit with Norton and Peralta Hacienda staff throughout the year by contributing writing, photos and collages they make and bring that will be added to visuals and writings by Norton.

If you would like to tell your story or participate in the workshops, email [email protected].

Two immediate opportunities to participate are:

  • On June 5 and June 6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Story Corps will be conducting interviews with community members
  • On June 12, from 2:30-5:30 p.m., Linda Norton will be in residence at the Peralta House Museum of History and Community to make collages to add to the exhibit. Refreshments will be served.
