Joy Ng is a born-and-raised San Franciscan. In this episode, Joy talks about her childhood, in Chinatown, North Beach, and a couple other neighborhoods. She ends with her time at SF State, where she changed her major and got involved in community organizing. A large influence in that shift was Curtis Choy's documentary, The Fall of the I-Hotel. Here's the trailer for that film:
FoundSF has more info on the story of the International Hotel eviction and demolition.
Join us again Thursday, when Joy will talk about her work as a hip-hop blogger.
We recorded this podcast in June 2019 at the Bayanihan Community Center.
