DISCOVER THE WALKING TOUR
The Black Liberation Walking Tour (BLWT) is a community-led cultural asset map celebrating Hoover-Foster’s multi-generational Black history and culture.
A project of the West Oakland Cultural Action Network (WOCAN), the BLWT captures oral histories to document the lives, art, and the culture of long-time residents, historical figures, and rapidly disappearing former Black cultural spaces.

"Our tour guide, long-time West Oakland resident, David Peters, dispelled another myth about the relationship between the Black Panthers and the church. It is so good to share this important history with my children."
