Oakland Photographer Brittani Sensabaugh Captures Portraits of Life in America's Most Dangerous Neighborhoods
I had known Brittani Sensabaugh for less than two minutes before she started crying. It was last Thursday morning at a well known cafe in Uptown Oakland. We had just sat down over mugs of hot chocolate, when she pointed out to me that we were the only two "melanin people" (her term for people of color) in the room. Then, in walked a young black man wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Unarmed Citizen.” Cue the water works.
It's been almost 15 years since the heady smell of barbecue permeated San Francisco’s Fillmore District, and reviving the delicious tradition was no easy task. It took an entire neighborhood.
If, like me, you're tired of the oddly synthetic smell that comes with department store perfumes and wish that you could bottle clean mountain air as your everyday eau de toilette, then you'll be elated to know about Juniper Ridge, an Oakland-based aroma company producing organic, bottled wilderness scents straight from the source.
If you have the day off today, consider yourself lucky. A group of protesters have completely blocked the Bay Bridge as of Monday afternoon.
Sitting high above the Town in Oakland's Claremont hills, this futuristic abode was asking a whopping $21M, and sold for just shy of that figure this week.
