Event description

Description

Please join Chapter 510 and some of your favorite storytellers for an only-in-Oakland night to remember.

We're thrilled to announce that our line-up this year includes rapper, writer, and filmmaker Boots Riley (Sorry to Bother You); writer and filmmaker Nijla Mu'min whose new movie Jinn will be released in November; and award-winning poet and activist Tongo Eisen-Martin (American Book Award-winning Heaven Is All Goodbyes).

Our esteemed guests will be interviewed by Chapter 510's very own young author Aissaade Negus (Mila Scott and the Dance Debacle). 2018 Oakland Youth Poet Laureate Leila Motley will emcee the evening. We're also in for a special treat with a guest performance by Oakland's very own Fantastic Negrito! Finally, get ready to dance the night away to tunes spun by DJ XCAIROCITOSX.

Filipino food from the Jeepney Guy and beverages will be available for purchase.

Have any burning questions for our headliners? With the purchase of the VIP package you can attend an exclusive Meet and Greet with these incredible Oakland storytellers and enjoy complimentary food and drink tickets. This is an opportunity you don't want to miss!
