ED HOWARD’S LIFE STORY PART (10B) THE RENOWN ED HOWARD’S PLACE NIGHTCLUB! 1970’s

THE RENOWN ED HOWARD’S PLACE NIGHTCLUB! 1970’s

WHO’S WHO SNAPSHOTS OF ED HOWARD’S NIGHTCLUB CROWD…

Black Oakland you might see your grandfather/mother or just family or friends in this true positive Black History of Oakland.

Thank for journeying with us from episode 1 to episode 10 of our series highlighting the vivid lifetime milestones of Oakland original pioneer, Mr. Ed Howard.

As many of you know from our first post, earlier this year I reached out to Mr. Howard

while researching my current novel-in-progress, a story partly taking place in the early days of West Oakland.

As expected, I was treated to great, positive anecdotes from the life of a West Oakland original! What I didn’t expect was a budding new friendship across generation gaps.  Myself, as a 1980-born Greek-American, and Mr. Howard, as an elder Black man, have bonded over our Oakland roots and love of the Town.

Stay tuned as we pick up in 2021 with more of Mr. Howard’s powerful story.”
