Film Screening of Evolutionary Blues -West Oakland’s Music Legacy

February 24 @ 6:00 PM PST

Evolutionary Blues -west Oakland's Music Legacy

Evolutionary Blues is a full-length documentary, featuring interviews with more than 30 artists who regularly played in clubs and music venues that lined the blocks of 7th Street before a charge for “urban renewal” decimated the thriving, self-sustaining Oakland Black community. It’s a story about the Great Migration, told through the lens and culture of blues musicians, many of whom never made it to national fame but were respected and acclaimed within the true blues scene. They carried the soul of their Southern roots — Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas — to Oakland.
