Tue Nov 30 2010Profile of Journalist JR Valrey
Tue Nov 30 2010Hidden in Plain Sight: Media Workers for Social Change, Chapter 8
In this eighth chapter of “Media Workers for Social Change” Peter M profiles journalist JR Valrey. Valrey covers the Black neighborhoods in the Bay Area, addressing issues relevant to community members, and informing people on the outside as to what is going on. His forte is coverage of political prisoners and police issues. He is host of "The Block Report" on KPFA and other stations and works for The San Francisco Bay View. He is also Minister of Information for the Prisoners of Conscience Committee.
"'My most vivid memory is when Huey Newton died,' Valrey told me. Newton was shot and killed on the street in 1989 in West Oakland, not far from the apartment where Valrey and I met for our interview. 'My grandmother made a point to tell us, her grandchildren, to not believe the slander, that Huey Newton was somebody who represented for our people, and that we needed to always remember that, and always remember that our family stood on the side of Huey Newton and the Black Panther Party, and not the police.'”
