On June 13 at 2:30 pm, writer and artist Linda Norton in collaboration with Friends Peralta Hacienda Historical Park will inaugurate a new and exciting exhibit about the effects of mass incarceration in Oakland. The exhibit called, Home & Away: Oakland California's Prisons, and the Geography of the Heart, is the final result of a series of interviews and workshops in which youth and adults discussed the effects mass incarceration has had in their lives. In the exhibit Linda Norton explores the connections between those who remain in the neighborhood and those who are "away," behind bars.

About Peralta Hacienda
Friends of Peralta Hacienda Historical Park offers an environment for the enjoyment of the community, where neighbors as well as visitors from the region, state, and nation can be actively involved in its historical and natural features through performances, tours, community gardens, community-initiated enterprises, celebrations and educational workshops and programs. We present and interpret the untold history of the Peralta rancho and the stories of the Fruitvale community today, giving voice to the many cultures that have created - and are still transforming - California. The six-acre park and historic house form an arts and educational hub for local families and youth, and regional center for historical inquiry and discovery.
