Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join an evening of conversation and discovery with Ken Talken and Corrina Gould, both prominent voices for social justice in the East Bay.
Ken’s great-great-great grandfather was Antonio Peralta, whose family was granted the whole Oakland area as a cattle ranch. Corrina Gould is a descendent of Jose Guzman, an Ohlone laborer on the Peralta rancho.
On Saturday, January 14th, Ken and Corrina will lead a discussion, engaging with one another about what it means to be descended from people who were so at odds with one another.
Ken and Corrina’s discussion will be moderated by Professor Vladimir Guerrero, an expert on Native American history in California. Before the conversation, Guerrero will explore how Native Americans like Chief Palma were integral to the success of Spain’s endeavor to colonize California. He will weave a story of the many tribes of California’s coast, and their varying experiences interacting with Spanish interlopers.
