High St. Este de Oakland Tierra de Lucha y Limones: Another gem from Brenda Montano all about the history of the Latin@ community in East Oakland. Brenda describes this zine best: “As a non-native Oakland resident, I began this project with limited information, much of which was the consistent story heard on mainstream news outlets that shapes Oakland to be a place in which only violence prevails, a place that is to be feared. However, I disagree with this perception and see Oakland as a place of resistance, a place that is beautiful, filled with color and love.” This zine remembers a history that has fallen between the cracks and gives meaning to an often misunderstood community.
