"Evolutionary Blues... West Oakland's Music Legacy" - SWFCenter received a sizeable production grant to move this feature-length historical documentary from concept to distribution. It's been a roller coaster ride but an experience none of us would miss! CLICK on KTOP above to get to their schedule. Beginning September 2018, Evolutionary Blues... will be part of their programming schedule. Thank you KTOP for an amazing opportunity.
"I'll Tell My Story" our 2014 project with 5 formerly incarcerated men and women - would not have been possible without a grant from Proposition 47. That campaign to reform California's war on poor communities put criminal justice on a right track and into the consciousness of Californian's. Impacting, particularly and unfairly, Black and Brown families Prop 47 allowed us to consider what happens to those who can't afford the cost of defending themselves against our criminal justice system. See the 5 stories under "I'll Tell My Story."
*SWFCenter received support from Aknonadi Foundation and it allowed us to screen the film "Evolutionary Blues... West Oakland's Music Legacy," in 14 Oakland venues for free! *Akonadi supported our Hummingbirds Urban Gardens project, by funding a celebration of the garden project effort. * and Akonadi is a supporter of a project SWFCenter fiscally sponsors, Abundant Beginnings.
Thank you, Akonadi Foundation, for this show of confidence!
