We are Oaklandish: Brandan and his transition to The Town

We are Oaklandish: Brandan and his transition to The Town

"I moved to Oakland in 2013 to start over. Growing up in Riverside, there wasn’t much to do because of the limited resources. After graduating from college, I reached a point where I felt like my life was on auto pilot and I was eager to try something new. It didn’t take me long to become acclimated to my new city. I used AC Transit as my tour guide, taking the bus aboard allowed me to see many sides of the East Bay and meet new people going places that I never experienced. I soon discovered that Oakland has an...

We are Oaklandish: Our own Marcos Montoya talks growing up in the East

We are Oaklandish: Our own Marcos Montoya talks growing up in the East

"My name is Marcos Montoya, I'm 23 and I was born and raised in East Oakland. Growing up here in Oakland has been a complex experience. I'm sure we can relate to that in some way or another. The neighborhood I grew up in experienced much gang related crime and at times was dire. Yet, the families there were resilient. We stuck through and were there for each other through the worst. Our community within grew. From inviting everyone in the neighborhood to family parties, to cooking dinner for each other when times were tougher. We all embraced each other...

We are Oaklandish: Tunde Ahmad, Baseball & community

When I first saw the Oaklandish baseball jersey, I began feeling nostalgic. It reminded me of my time playing baseball in the Babe Ruth league in East Oakland at Greenman Field/Havenscourt. I remember marching from Concordia Park on 62nd to Greenman Field on 66th for opening day each April. The streets would be blocked off, and the champions from the previous year would get to ride in the back of trucks, making everybody want to be in their position next year. There would be a huge BBQ, team pictures, and events going on all day. The league was a staple...
