Wednesday, May 04, 2016
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The event, held Wednesday, April 27 was a collaboration between the Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts Department, Education and Referral Organization for Sexuality, KQED and the San Francisco Foundation. The live show led a discussion about race and dating where recordings of three subjects were played through a speaker for the audience and panelists to hear and respond to. “Truth Be Told” focuses on handling racially charged situations through the sharing of experiences of past encounters and coming up with solutions so that the public can refer to it for advice, according to the KQED website. One of the few audience participants was Jared Zachary, a third-year political science major. “I loved the performance,” Zachary said. “I loved that I got share my thoughts and I loved the spoken word by Echo Brown. I related to it a lot, so I thought it was very powerful.”
