The Blues is an earthy, soul-stirring mélange of roots music and personal narratives that became the defining soundtrack of Black America. Wherever Black people settled that soundtrack took on a local flavor. In Northern California, the influences came from the musicianship of Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma. Seventh Street in West Oakland supported and bolstered Blacks who answered the call of the war effort in the late 1940’s. Entrepreneurship created a fully contained community that provided work, homes and all the necessities of life including a fully developed music scene. Watch as more than 30 local musicians share their inspiration and describe the trajectory of the Oakland Blues: how it evolved and what it has become.

Evolutionary Blues … West Oakland’s Music Legacy is a project by KTOP Channel 10, the government channel of the City of Oakland. It has been produced and directed by Cheryl Fabio, filmmaker, and Executive Director of Sarah Webster Fabio Center for Social Justice (SWFCenter), the film’s co-producer.
