Home & Away: Oakland, California's Prisons, and the Geography of the Heart
Home and Away is a project that documents the effects of mass incarceration on our community in Oakland. Community members created the exhibit in the Peralta House Museum throughout 2015 through writing, photos, and collages they made and brought, adding to visuals, words and a map of California's prisons provided by artist and writer Linda Norton.

Come hear the narratives of African American residents of Oakland as they shine a light on the East Bay's past while exploring identity and connection here and now.
