RAW Talent of Richmond

I was floored the first time I heard the students of RAW talent perform.  The strength, power and passion emanating from these youths are truly moving.  They tell the stories of those who are usually silenced and explore both the roots of poverty and how it impacts them personally.

RAW Talent is a part of the larger Making Waves Education program, and serves youth from Richmond and Oakland. We are holding an event this Sunday that will be a show full of beautiful words, ugly truths and community healing- we will laugh, we will cry, and together we will move towards a more just future for Richmond. Please support the arts and the youth by joining us!

In addition, Bobby Seale, the founder of the Black Panther Party, will be joining us as the keynote speaker for this event.
