Just a note. I am 78 years old, and Edna Brewer was my 9th. grade counselor at Oakland High in 1955.. Without her caring and help, I would never have made it through high school with the success that I did have. Those of you working or going to school at Edna Brewer Middle School, be aware that you are heirs to a wonderful educator, who made a lot of difference to a lot of kids over the years.

OUSD musicians are performing virtually while making a powerful statement about racial justice.
They collaborated on “Freedom of Speech,” a project between the Oakland EastSide All-Star Ensemble (OEASE) and Oakland-based Hip Hop artist, JAHI. OEASE is comprised of high school and middle school jazz musicians from Oakland Technical High School, Oakland High School Wildcats, Skyline High School - Oakland, Oakland School for the Arts and Edna Brewer Middle School.
This project was created with the support of SFJAZZ and The Generations in Jazz Foundation. It speaks to the urgency of addressing racial equality and the systemic problems embedded in American society. These musicians use their song and spirit to fight for what needs to change in our world.
Special thanks go to video editor, Jean Black of Black Camera Productions and audio engineer, Mike Aaberg. #OUSDJams ... See MoreSee Less
