Like any city, growing up in Oakland can have its challenges. For Pendarvis Harshaw, he turned his experiences of growing up in Oakland into the book “OG Told Me,” a collection of advice he got over the years, in hopes of passing that knowledge down to kids to make their growing up experiences a little bit easier. Today we have him on the podcast to talk about his book, and dive into his experiences in Oakland and how he hopes to see a better world for the next generation of Oakland youth.
