I’ve been out of commission the last couple of days, so you’ve probably heard this news already, but in case you haven’t:
Those arrested in Thursday night’s protest included Oakland school board member Jumoke Hinton Hodge — who was playing chess at the intersection of Broadway and 14th Street and refused to stop, the East Bay Express reported — and Susan Harman, a former school principal and activist.
Pamela Drake, an adult education teacher who participated in the demonstration, wrote an account of what she and Harman saw and experienced on the Oakland Local blog. You can read it here.
Were you there? What did you see?
