WHAT: Walking Tour of Fruitvale!
WHEN: Sunday, May 22, 10:00 am
WHERE: Starts at Peralta House kitchen, 2465 34th Ave. Oakland, CA 94601

Meet in the beautiful Peralta House kitchen (2465 34th Ave) at 10 am with Professor Alex Saragoza of UC Berkeley and Executive Director and curator Holly Alonso to hear and see how foods have flowed through Fruitvale through time, in the baskets and saddlebags of people of many cultures. 

Then walk down to Foothill Ave to talk to the neighborhood's latino chefs, bakers and restauranteurs about their life stories, secret recipes and food traditions, such as Pan Dulce, Pozole and Pupusas. You will hear the personal stories of these master cooks--how and why they came, and how they have thrived, and how they make the food we love. Linger at the end of the tour to eat lunch in your choice of the restaurants you have just learned about. A fabulous introduction to a new way of looking at Fruitvale!

WHAT: Film showing and “talk show” panel
WHEN: Saturday May 28, 5:30-8:30pm
WHERE: Center for History & Community, 2488 Coolidge Ave. Oakland CA 94601

Each member of the panel will speak, telling their experiences of immigration and deportation, with UC Berkeley professor Alex Saragoza moderating the panel and summarizing in English or Spanish as needed. After the panel there will be questions from the audience. The main question for the panel will be, What is your experience of immigration and deportation?

About the film: Episode 6: Peril and Promise takes viewers through the past 30 years, with a second wave of Cubans arriving in Miami during the Mariel exodus and with hundreds of thousands Salvadorans, Nicaraguans and Guatemalans fleeing civil wars, death squads and unrest to go north into a new land — transforming the United States along the way.
