Great story, great reminder of people on all sides of the coin who have feeling and how all things going on can affect the psyche on both sides. .

Love to hear good stuff happening in Oakland bubbling up to the New York Times! Lots of grassroots efforts in Oakland to increase diversity in tech like Black Girls Code, the Hidden Genius Project (featured below) and Hack the Hood! These groups are led by young black people hoping to increase diversity in their field.

Silicon Valley, Seeking Diversity, Focuses on Blacks

Quote:
That experience led Mr. Young to found the Hidden Genius Project two years ago. The program immerses high school men of color in coding, web and app design, team building and other skills intended to give them a leg up in the tech economy. Mr. Young says he focused on young men because similar groups existed for young women, and because young males face particular challenges in school and their communities.

His project is one of a multitude of grass-roots efforts that have sprung up recently to address one of Silicon Valley’s most acute diversity problems: the scarcity of African-Americans in the tech industry.
