Sacramento High senior lands full-ride basketball scholarship amid pandemic
Fox 40 6.4.21

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — COVID-19 threatened to derail college dreams for student athletes across the country, but one Sacramento High School senior was such a standout that she earned a full-ride college scholarship — without recruiters having met her in person.

“That was really difficult because not a lot of coaches were able to see me last year,” Heaven Samayoa-Mathis recounted.

Samayoa-Mathis, along with her family and coach, knew that meant they’d have to work that much harder to get her noticed.

Underground Books

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A book store in Oak Park has taken the time during the pandemic to remodel and expand – and now it’s back open.

Underground Books is operated by St. Hope, a family of neighborhood nonprofits dedicated to revitalizing Oak Park

The book store’s manager and operator has been with the store since its opening in 2003.

“We’re trying to bring art and culture to the community. There’s no library in this community, so we bring literacy and make it available for everyone,” said Georgia “Mother Rose” West.

Bonney Donates Headsets to PS7 Elementary Scholars

Imagine this: You are trying to listen to the instructions from your teacher on your laptop, the volume is all the way up, but you still can’t hear. You look around the room and all your brothers, sisters, even parents are trying to do the same. Add the fact that you are still trying to figure out how distance learning works. Sounds frustrating, doesn’t it?

10 Black-Owned Bookstores To Tap For Your Fall Reading List
The Zoe Report

Nothing quite says fall like hunkering down with a good book and comforting mug full of your preferred hot beverage. But no matter what it is you choose to read this season, consider picking it up from one of many Black-owned bookstores. Not only can spending your money mindfully help support Black businesses — and in turn encourage more of them — but because many of these shops specialize in books about race and culture specifically, shopping here might just inspire you to fill your fall reading list with resources that educate and inform you.

Oak Park Brewing’s newest is much more than a beer. It’s a Black history lesson
The Sacramento Bee 8.28.20

You know the story.

A pint hits the tap at Sacramento’s Oak Park Brewing. The liquid pours straw yellow; the head floating puffy, like a cloud. The first sip tastes like every beer that made Milwaukee famous, especially those from the 1970s heyday of Schlitz, Old Style and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Oak Park’s People’s Beer, which was canned this week and is being released Friday, is the next liquid chapter that flows from the confluence of the Black Civil Rights movement and the beer-brewing heart of the country.
