Cultural mecca and home to a diverse community of urban beauty, art and history, Oakland, California is the epicenter of afrocentrism. Located just minutes from San Francisco, separated by a small body of water and the Bay Bridge, Oakland has its own distinct history, sounds, tastes, and social movements known around the world.
