Last weekend, Boots Riley of The Coup discussed his film, Sorry To Bother You at the 81st Avenue Community Library for Sarah Webster Fabio Center for Social Justice's #ResistanceResilienceAnticipation.

According to Riley, he grew up by the 81st Avenue Community Library branch and filmed in Oakland because he's from The Town and wanted to make a film that was authentic, captured nuance, and escaped cookie-cutter formats.

Thank you Boots Riley of The Coup Akonadi Foundation Bookmark Bookstore / Friends of the Oakland Public Library (FOPL) Sarah Webster Fabio Center for Social Justice!

If you see any of these, our posters are beckoning you to come to the sneak peak screening of Evolutionary Blues... West Oakland's Music Legacy. It's a 90 minute film, at the Grand Lake Theatre on 9/27 at 7pm. Over 35 Oakland based musicians share stories about their beginnings, their music, and what was happening around them. We sample almost 20 original songs - its a blast! Take a chance, get some tickets and see for yourself. We will have a brief Q & A. Come mingle with the musicians!
