Youth Radio Mural-Oakland California (Video)

In case you didnt catch this, Dignidad Rebelde, Youth Radio Staff and Youth, Various Community artists, and The Trust Your Struggle Collective (My crew!) collaborated on creating this mural in downtown Oakland in the exact same place on the same boards that the Oscar Grant mural was painted. The youth in the piece are youth from the center. In the video you can see some people talking about their feelings/thoughts and you can see some process shots of the wall being painted.
Here is a video of Yoshi (TYS Collective) and Maevan McGovern (Youth Radio) talking about the process and reasoning behind it on KTVU channel 2.
Here are some other articles about it as well in the Oakland Local by Eric K Arnold and San Jose Mercury News
