Councilmember Sean Loloee | Sex Trafficking in Sacramento County | Wine Harvest Season in Northern California
A CapRadio investigation into Sacramento Councilmember Sean Loloee’s North Sacramento residence. A newly released study reveals the extent of sex trafficking in Sacramento County. A preview of wine "harvest season" in Northern California. Councilmember Sean Loloee For roughly six weeks, Sacramento City Councilmember Sean Loloee has been at the center of an independent investigation into his residency. The councilmember, who represents District 2, has been accused of not living in the district he was elected to serve, which is against the law, and instead living in neighboring Placer County in his wife's Granite Bay home. Councilmember Loloee has denied these allegations first reported by the Sacramento Bee since the beginning, saying he lives permanently at the North Sacramento home off Nogales Street, where he is also registered to vote. But now there is another development. Sacramento Police records show that there have been nine complaints at the North Sacramento residence Councilmember Loloee owns and says he lives at "seven days a week." CapRadio News Editor Kris Hooks obtained those records and joined Insight to share more about what he found and the councilmember's response to the police reports. Sex Trafficking in Sacramento County Sex trafficking has received growing attention recently, especially since Congress passed the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000. But 20 years isn’t necessarily a lot of time. There is limited research on the prevalence from one community to the next because trafficking is a hidden crime that can happen gradually over time. Sacramento County funded what it calls the first study of its kind in California, and the numbers gave us pause. From 2015 to 2020, the study found in Sacramento County that there are more than 13,000 victims of sex trafficking, a number that is likely an underestimate. The research also included interviewing more than 150 survivors with the goal of prevention and creating the right resources. Insight spoke with three guests who each played a key role in the study: Dr. Shannon Williams with the Institute for Social Research at Sacramento State, Terri Galvan with the non-profit Community Against Sexual Harm, and Sacramento City Councilmember Eric Guerra, who helped lock down the state funding for the project. Wine harvest season preview With everything going on in the world, we all deserve a break from the news. And there's no better way to take a break than with a fantastic glass (or two) of wine. So Insight decided to set aside our last segment of the week to talk wine. And not so much about the business of wine, but dig deeper into what we like, what's good this time of year, and what we can expect in the upcoming harvest. So with all due respect to climate change and supply chain issues, today’s segment is about what’s good in your glass with a few weeks left in summer and what to drink a few months from now. For this segment, Insight welcomed back Rick Kushman, a New York Times bestselling author, former Sac Bee columnist, and longtime Insight contributor who knows a thing or two about wine.

North Sacramento History of Underfunding | Yurok Tribe Redwood Canoe Tours | Mariachi Festival de Sacramento
North Sacramento’s residents feel underrepresented at City Hall. The Yurok Tribe, the largest tribe in the state, restores the lost art of hand-built canoes from California redwoods. CapRadio series listens to North Sacramento residents who call for investments in community. A preview of the Mariachi Festival De Sacramento. North Sacramento For the past year, CapRadio producers, editors, and reporters have been listening to residents in North Sacramento, known as City Council District 2. All this week, CapRadio has been sharing conversations about some of the issues facing the area, from homelessness to a lack of investment and a drought of resources for youth. One issue we heard about is the area’s inadequate representation at City Hall. And now, Council Member Sean Loloee, who represents the district, is currently under investigation because of claims he does not live there. But he isn’t District 2’s first divisive politician. CapRadio reporters Janelle Salanga and Kristin Lam joined Insight to share their reporting on North Sacramento and its residents. Yurok Tribe Redwood canoe tours Known as a great fisherman, the Klamath River has long been a lifeline for the Yurok Tribe, located in the heart of the California redwoods. The largest tribe in the state has more than 5,000 members with land that spans the coastline, along Highway 101, up the Klamath River towards the Oregon border. Yurok Canoe Captain Julian Markussen, Yurok Culture Bearer Hop Norris and Yurok Canoe Builder David Eric Severns discuss reviving the lost art of hand-built canoes from fallen redwoods and offering guided Yurok Redwood Canoe Tours in Del Norte County to the public. A beautiful and serene, two- or four-hour voyage that shares the history of Yurok culture and a way of life that goes back centuries. The canoes are handmade from redwoods, never cut down, with a deep respect for the tallest tree in the world. The redwood-Yurok bond dates back centuries, passed down through oral tradition. But like countless Native American traditions, was nearly decimated. The tours open to the public help fund the revival of the Yurok tradition of redwood canoes — logs which can be costly to acquire and transport. The song performed is titled “Neypuy Rek’woy” from Yurok singer James Gensaw Sr. Mariachi Festival de Sacramento Whimsical strings. Triumphal trumpets. A hypnotic guitar rhythm and, of course, soaring voices to raise the spirit or break the heart. All of these ingredients are key to Mariachi, one of the most distinctive and unmistakable musical styles in the world. This iconic music is being celebrated at Mariachi Festival de Sacramento held at the SAFE Credit Union Performing Arts Center in downtown Sac. The event promises to showcase the beautiful music of Mexico, including a performance by Mariachi Estrella de Mexico, the largest Mariachi in the world. But another notable Mariachi performing is Mariachi Bonitas, an all-female Mariachi created to share the captivating art of Mariachi Northern California. Dinorah Klingler, the manager and lead singer of Mariachi Bonitas and organizer of Mariachi Festival de Sacramento, joined Insight to share her music and give us a preview of the festival.

California School Safety | North Sacramento Organizations Overcome ‘Neglect’ | Northern California Wolf Pups
Updated at 1:05 p.m. A conversation with a national school safety expert regarding the fatal stabbing at Stockton’s Stagg High School and campus safety ahead of the new school year. Shoun Thao, with Hmong Organizing for Progress and Empowerment (HOPE) Center, and Daniel Savala, with the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership, discuss the issues and needs of the North Sacramento community. Two of California’s three existing wolf packs have produced 11 new pups, reflecting promising momentum in the comeback of the species in Northern California. School safety Around Northern California, students around the region are wrapping up their summer breaks and preparing to return to class for a new school year. Safety was top of mind on the first day of school at Stockton’s Stagg High, where nearly four months ago, 15-year-old Alycia Reynaga was tragically stabbed to death by an intruder. Documents recently obtained by the Stockton Record from the Stockton Unified School District reveal a security booth at the school’s main entrance was empty the morning of the attack, and four of the school’s seven security guards were absent that day. Stockton Unified School District’s Interim Superintendent has announced new security measures at the school, including a “security monitor” at the school entrance, expanded gates and fencing, and a larger police presence. The tragedy at Stagg High highlights the many challenges schools face in keeping everyone on campus safe from the threat of violence. To better understand these challenges Insight spoke with Kenneth Trump, President of the National School Safety and Security Services, onto the program. North Sacramento organizations overcoming neglect Sixty years ago, North Sacramento was its own city. At the time, it had a population of roughly 16,000 people with its own city council, police department, and fire stations. That changed in 1964 when the city of Sacramento voted to annex North Sac and fold it into the city limits now known as District 2. Since the beginning, residents against annexation argued that elected officials would overlook them and that neighborhoods like Hagginwood, Del Paso Heights, Old North Sacramento, and other nearby communities would shoulder more than their share of the city’s most pressing issues. Jump ahead to the present day, and North Sacramento represents roughly 68,000 people. CapRadio spent nearly a year meeting with residents, listening to their current concerns, frustrations, and ideas about possible solutions. Those conversations are the foundation of a CapRadio week-long series. In this episode of Insight, Shoun Thao, founder of the Hmong Organizing for Progress and Empowerment (HOPE) Center, and Daniel Savala, Executive Director of the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership, discuss working to overcome the collective feeling of neglect by transforming underserved neighborhoods through services and changing perspectives. Northern California wolf pups Nearly a decade ago, a lone male wolf left his pack in Oregon and journeyed across the California border into Siskiyou County, becoming the first wolf to return to the Golden State since they were eradicated nearly a century ago. In the years since the wolf packs have slowly reestablished themselves in the state's northeastern corner. The overall population grew to about 20 wolves between the three packs by the end of last year. But wolf advocates say they're overjoyed to learn that two of those packs got notably bigger just last week. The Center for Biological Diversity announced eleven new wolf pups were born in two packs who roam the Siskiyou, Plumas, and Lassen County regions. This brings the population to approximately 28 known wolves in the state. For conservationists, the births marked a milestone in their efforts to reestablish California as "wolf country." But not everyone is enthused with their return, and the wolves remain increasingly threatened by human activity and a changing climate. Amaroq Weiss, Senior Wolf Advocate with the Center for Biological Diversity, joined Insight to discuss the latest additions to California's wolf family and what steps are being taken to protect the endangered animals. Correction: Shoun Thao was incorrectly spelled in a previous version of this article. It has been corrected.

California’s New Monkeypox Committee | North Sacramento CapRadio Series | StocktonCon Summer Pop Culture Convention
How California is ramping up its Monkeypox response after the virus has been declared a public health emergency by the state and federal governments. CapRadio’s week-long reporting series on North Sacramento. StocktonCon celebrates its 10th anniversary. California's new monkeypox committee In the past week, both the Biden Administration and Governor Newsom declared Monkeypox a public health emergency. The declarations open access to emergency funding to ramp up and streamline vaccine clinics, treatment, and outreach, especially to the most vulnerable communities. Newsom says California will build upon the infrastructure from the pandemic. But the initial response to this new public health crisis has been criticized for repeating similar missteps of COVID-19 back in 2020. Even though a vaccine and antiviral treatment already exist for Monkeypox, availability is limited across the country. This is once again creating a response of “catch up,” with long lines for vaccines, test results that can take so long it pretty much renders them useless, and not enough treatment to go around for a virus that is rarely deadly but can be very painful and, in extreme cases, require hospitalization. State Senator Scott Wiener has been concerned and critical about the public health response pretty much from the beginning. The Democrat from the Bay Area joined Insight to discuss becoming the chair of a new select committee at the State Capitol to improve the state’s response to the Monkeypox outbreak. North Sacramento series Nearly 60 years ago, North Sacramento became absorbed into Sacramento. Since the beginning, residents argued that elected officials would overlook them and that their neighborhoods would shoulder more than their share of the city’s most pressing issues. For the past year, CapRadio spent time listening to those who call North Sac home, culminating in a weeklong reporting series. CapRadio spent the past year listening to those who call North Sac home, culminating in a weeklong series CapRadio’s News Editor Nick Miller joined Insight to share more about the reporting series and CapRadio reporter Chris Nichols shared his reporting on the unhoused community and housing issues in North Sacramento. StocktonCon Stan Lee is regarded as the godfather of comic books because of his pivotal role in writing many of the Marvel Universe's iconic superheroes. In 1986, in the Fantastic Four comic, issue 296, Lee confirmed the home of "Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and the Thing" is Stockton, California. However, Stockton isn't just home to superheroes. StocktonCon is in its 10th year and is the Central Valley's gathering place for all things pop culture and entertainment. Like many superhero origin stories, the event began small but, over the past decade, evolved and grew into costume contests, gaming tournaments, panels, exhibitions, vendors, and more. StocktonCon President Mike Millerick joined Insight to share how the event has grown and give listeners of this year's convention.

Sacramento Ukrainian Refugees | Sacramento Youth PopUp Programs | Sacramento Black Experience Project
Sacramento has become a hub for Ukrainian refugees fleeing their war-torn country. Sierra Health Foundation announces the relaunching of youth “PopUp” programs for the month of August. The city of Sacramento is asking for the community’s help with their “Black Experience Project.” Sacramento's Ukrainian refugees Thousands of Ukrainians crossed the border from Mexico to California following the Russian invasion of their home country. Many have chosen to stay in the Sacramento area, which already has a large and tight-knit Ukrainian community. CapRadio Editor Pauline Bartolone has been following the migration of these refugees to our region over the past months and joined Insight with more conversations with refugees to find out why they’re coming here, how they’re faring, and where they’re finding support. She also learned that one of their biggest challenges was getting permission to work. Sacramento's youth PopUp programs Four years ago, the City of Sacramento, in partnership with community organizations, created a free safe place for children and their families. Youth pop-ups, from bowling alleys to movies, ice skating rinks, BBQs at the park / the list of activities goes on and on. In that time, more than 2,000 youth pop-ups have taken place across the city’s eight neighborhoods, thanks to several dozen community-based organizations. To get a status check on the impact these events have had on communities, Insight spoke with Kaying Hang of Sierra Health Foundation and The Center, Pastor Les Simmons of the Simmons Community Center, and Mai Yang Thor of Hmong Youth and Parents United. Sacramento's Black Experience Project The City of Sacramento needs help filling in the gaps and painting a complete picture of African American history and the experience in the Capital City. In collaboration with Sacramento State University, the city is creating the African American Experience Project, an effort to cultivate the Black experience in Sacramento. The team behind the project is expanding the project so the whole African American community can contribute and highlight this either untold or neglected history by contributing family artifacts, newspaper clippings, family photos, and sharing their recordings of conversations with their elders. Sean De Courcy, Preservation Director for the City of Sacramento, joined Insight to share more about the project and how the community can participate.

Covered California Explains Rate Increases | Reinvesting in Stockton | Woodland Opera House Musical “In the Heights”
Covered California explains why health insurance rates are projected to increase. Author of “The Fight to Save the Town: Reimagining Discarded America” discusses lessons from Stockton. Woodland Opera House performs the Broadway musical “In the Heights.” Covered California rate increases Six percent. That’s how much the cost of health plans offered by Covered California are expected to go up next year. And that’s just the average. There are some parts of the state where rates will likely increase by double digits. And if federal funding isn’t renewed, health insurance marketplaces across the country like Covered California may push rates even higher. And as more people resume doctor appointments at this stage in the pandemic, costs to see a physician are also having an impact. There is also another big change at Covered California this year. For the first time since the state health insurance marketplace launched in 2012 Covered California has a new leader. Covered California's new Executive Director Jessica Altman joined Insight to discuss her journey to becoming the leader of Covered California and the rate changes. Stockton reinvestment It’s been 10 years since Stockton filed bankruptcy, the largest municipality to do so at the time (Detroit would file bankruptcy the following year). During the 2008 recession, a perfect financial storm hit cities like Stockton hard. Foreclosures, declining home values, loose spending, and not planning for a negative downturn. Stockton is one of the most diverse cities in the country, yet it is often used as a headline as a poverty-stricken and high-crime place. But headlines as just that and there is always more to the story. Michelle Wilde Anderson is an Urban Law Professor at Stanford University and her new book, “The Fight to Save the Town: Reimagining Discarded America,” documents the dismantling (and rebuilding) of local government in high-poverty communities. Professor Anderson joined Insight to unpack what happened to Stockton and how residents are reinventing their city and fighting urban decline. "In the Heights" at the Woodland Opera House A Tony-award-winning musical and major motion picture will take the stage in Yolo County. The Woodland Opera House is opening its season with "In the Heights," based on the book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and transformed into a Broadway musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda. In the Heights showcases the thriving migrant community of Washington Heights in Manhattan, incorporating Caribbean rhythms, Hip-Hop, and traditional musical ballads to tell the story of a predominantly Latinx and Black neighborhood. The lead character Usnavi de la Vega, is the owner of a "bodega," a small Spanish grocery store, following his ambitions, struggles, and longing for a home. Jacob Gutiérrez-Montoya, Director and Choreographer for the musical at the Woodland Opera House, joined Insight to discuss the performance.

McKinney Fire | Sex Workers Outreach Project | Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria in West Sacramento
The latest on the deadly McKinney wildfire in Siskiyou County. A new state law revoked anti-loitering provisions that target sex workers. Cirque Du Soleil’s “Alegria” debuts in West Sacramento. McKinney Fire Update The McKinney Fire has charred over 86 square miles of the Klamath National Forest in less than four days and devastated at least one community along the Klamath River in Siskiyou County. At least 2,000 people were forced to evacuate, including residents of Yreka, which is home to more than 7,500 people and remains within the fire’s reach. The extent of the damage to homes and property along the Klamath River remains unknown/ but officials confirmed at least two people were unable to escape and sadly perished in the fire. Rain helped slow the fire’s ferocious pace, but thunderstorms sparked at least a dozen smaller fires in the county and the threat of gusty winds and dry lightning combined for a dangerous combination that could potentially fuel the state’s largest wildfire so far this year. Mike Lindbery, the public information officer for the McKinney Fire joined Insight to provide the very latest on the fire and how the weather has and will continue to impact efforts to bring it under control. Sex Workers Outreach Project Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new state law that repeals an anti-loitering provision that targets prostitution. The bill was approved by the legislature last fall but was delayed roughly nine months to allow those for and against the bill to weigh in. In signing the bill, Gov. Newsom said it does not legalize prostitution, but revokes provisions of a law that has disproportionately impacted Black and Brown women and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Additionally, those previously convicted can ask for those convictions to be dismissed or sealed. Those in support include the ACLU, Trans LatinX Coalition, the San Francisco and Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, and Sex Workers Outreach Project. However, the opposition includes the Republican Senate Caucus and Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. Their argument is that the unintended consequences of this law will embolden human traffickers and hinder law enforcement’s ability to help victims. Joining Insight to talk about the challenges of sex workers is Co-Founder of the Sex Workers Outreach Project Kristen DiAngelo. Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria in West Sacramento There is a vibe in West Sacramento that “things are happening.” If you’ve driven by the West Sacramento waterfront lately, you may have noticed a few changes. Construction is booming, hotels are springing up, roads are being improved, and there are new restaurants that have opened or re-opened in the last few months. One of the “things to do in West Sac” that is hard to miss, especially if you are passing by the Capital City Freeway. Right next to Sutter Health Park is a big, beautiful setup for Cirque du Soleil’s production of Alegria. Joining Insight is the artistic director of Alegria Michael G. Smith, along with Denice Domke with the West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce to discuss this revitalizing vibe in West Sacramento.

California’s Monkeypox Response | Lake Tahoe’s Ecological Health | All-Age Venue Café Colonial Fights to Stay Open
California’s response to the monkeypox outbreak. Researchers at UC Davis release their annual report, which raises concerns about the ecological health of Lake Tahoe. All-age venue Café Colonial fights to stay open. California's monkeypox response California Public Health officials are holding off on declaring a statewide emergency declaration for monkeypox - for now. During a call with reporters on July 29, Dr. Thomas Aragon, California’s Director of Public Health, said that while they are keeping a close eye on monkeypox and are taking it seriously, the infrastructure from COVID is in place to get necessary vaccines out to those who need them and that the surveillance of the disease is working well. This is despite the fact that the City of San Francisco declared its own state of emergency. That’s because San Francisco leaders say the state and feds need to be more aggressive in fighting monkeypox, and there are growing concerns that it is being labeled a disease that only the LGBTQ+ community needs to worry about - much like AIDS back in the early 1980s. Emily Hoeven from CalMatters, who writes the daily newsletter, What Matters, joined Insight to share more on California’s decision not to declare a state of emergency and why some are not happy with the response to monkeypox. Lake Tahoe's ecological health Lake Tahoe is the sapphire crown jewel of the Sierra Nevada. The Washoe Tribe are the original inhabitants of what they named "Da ow aga," meaning "Edge of the lake." And the word "Tahoe" is actually a mispronunciation of the Washoe word for "lake." Since then, John Muir has called the largest alpine lake in North America a "water heaven." Today, roughly 40,000 people call Tahoe home, with some 15 million tourists each year. But a new report is once again raising the alarm over the lake's long-term health. The report is from the Tahoe Environmental Research Center at UC Davis, which has conducted yearly reports on the lake since 1968, that's more than 50 years. The center's director Geoffrey Schladow joined Insight to provide more details on this year's report. Café Colonial's fight to stay open The arts and culture scene are still recovering from the scars of the pandemic over two-plus years, causing massive disruption to the industry. A live venue in Sacramento’s Oak Park neighborhood is among those fighting to stay open. Café Colonial was originally conceived as part of the Colonial Theater built back in 1940. The current chapter of the Cafe Colonial is an independent all-age sanctuary for many. But now, the venue is on the verge of closing its doors permanently. Owners Gabriell and Ben Garcia have put in everything to keep Café Colonial open for the Sacramento music community.

Mariposa County Wildfires | Sacramento Journalist Returns from Ukraine | Lavender Library for LGBTQ+ Community
The impact of two wildfires on the Mariposa County community. The Sacramento-based journalist who traveled to war-torn Ukraine and reconnected with his late father’s homeland. A volunteer-ran library is uplifting the LGBTQ+ community. Mariposa County wildfires Mariposa County is considered by many to be the main gateway to one of America's greatest national treasures: Yosemite National Park. But it's more than just a "gateway." This rural county along the western foothills of the Sierra is home to more than 17,000 people with deep roots in California history. Although it has no incorporated cities (or stop lights), its people are united by a strong sense of community, which was put to the test again with both the Washburn and Oak fires. The Washburn fire is largely contained, and firefighters are beginning to gain the upper hand against the Oak Fire. But as more progress is being made, the extent of the destruction and impact on residents is being realized. The Oak Fire has destroyed at least 77 Homes, and hundreds more remain threatened. Insight invited Dallin Kimble, Mariposa County's Administrative Officer, and Elizabeth Darcy, the county's Health and Human Services Department spokesperson, to learn more about what efforts are being made to assist those impacted / and how people in the region can help. Martin Kuz's journey to Ukraine In February 2022, life for Ukrainians unraveled into war. The Russian invasion, however, miscalculated the resistance they would face. An independent journalist based in Sacramento knew Ukrainians’ strength and resilience very well, as well as the history of hard-fought turmoil and sorrow leading to their country’s independence, which is again in jeopardy. Martin Kuz is that journalist. His later father escaped the Soviet Union becoming a refugee in the United States following WWII and building a life that in many ways fits the traditional definition of the “American Dream.” Martin returned to his late father’s homeland in the days leading up to the war and shared his reporting woven with family history into the July 2022 issue of Sactown Magazine and a spring edition of Christian Science Monitor. Insight spoke with Martin Kuz after he returned from his second trip to Ukraine in 2022. Lavender Library During Pride month, Anti-LGBTQ+ groups targeted pride events across the nation, but about 20 miles west of Sacramento, the city of Woodland dealt with similar threats by agitators at a local Pride event. With all the tension locally and beyond, the 23-year-old Lavender Library works as a sanctuary for the LGBTQ+ community in the greater Sacramento region, providing an oasis for the community to check out literature, movies, and resources that reflect the LGBTQ+ identity and needs. The Lavender Library is community-run and supported, and over the decades, many in Sacramento have joined the library to thrive in an environment that offers books with LGBTQ+ representation. With over two decades of existence, the all-volunteer library still needs help from the community and membership support as they navigate the pandemic and work to be more inclusive and accessible to all in the community.CapRadio’s Northern California Janelle Salanga joined Insight to discuss their reporting of the Lavender Library’s vibrant history and how the library adapted to a changing world.

Sacramento Real Estate Market | Sacramento Republic FC U.S. Open Cup Semifinal | Manetti Shrem Exhibit 'Young, Gifted and Black'
Sacramento real estate market. Why homeownership remains low for Black Americans. Plus, Sacramento Republic FC hosts the U.S. Open Cup Semifinal soccer match. Finally, the new Manetti Shrem Museum exhibit, “Young, Gifted and Black.” Sacramento's real estate market If you or someone you know has been looking to buy a house recently, it’s amazing how the market has changed in just a few months. From red-hot sales and astronomical prices to today where we are starting to see signs of a somewhat more reasonable or normal situation as the market cools. While it may be a little less competitive to grab that house of your dreams as supply is on the upswing, it may be a little more expensive to borrow the money needed to buy your house thanks to another upswing in interest rates. Insight took a closer look at navigating the current market and what pitfalls still linger as the economy compromises consumer confidence. To get a market update, Insight invited Ryan Lundquist, a Sacramento real estate analyst and appraiser, and Kee Mathews, a Broker & Owner of Mathews & Co Realty Group, who also hosts a radio talk show called “Selling Sacramento.” Sacramento Republic FC It’s David versus Goliath. A classic underdog story is set to play out at Cal Expo’s Heart Health Park. That’s when the Sacramento Republic FC soccer team will take on Sporting Kansas City in front of a sold-out crowd for a chance to win the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. Sac FC is in the USL Championship league, a division lower than Major League Soccer. Sporting KC is a Major League team. Sac FC had to beat not one but two Major League Teams to get to this point. If you are a fan of soccer or just a fan of good things happening in Sacramento, this is a big deal. To explain, Insight invited President and General Manager of Republic FC Todd Dunivant, a former MLS championship player who is leading this team on its Cinderella championship run. Young, Gifted and Black The contemporary art world has largely been viewed through a white male lens. However, in recent years, a social reckoning in representation has shifted the art world’s focus to feature and uplift a new generation of Black gifted artists. A powerful exhibition that has been touring exclusively on the East Coast will make its West Coast debut at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art in Davis. The collection is titled “ “Young, Gifted and Black,” which highlights the work of artists of African descent who are exploring identity, politics, and art history. Susie Kantor, the Associate Curator and Exhibition Department Head at the museum, joined Insight to share more details about the powerful exhibit.
