On April 23, KPCC In Person launches "Unheard LA – the stories of where you live," a dynamic three-show storytelling series showcasing Southern California's hidden gems and hidden truths: compelling unheard stories of community and identity, struggle and delight.

Uptown Whittier – named for a poet and known for a president – provides the perfect backdrop for the first show, a celebration of the diversity and complexity that define L.A. Immerse yourself in the lives of our storytellers as they sing songs of immigration, ponder in verse and honor beloved hometowns.

Join us as actor, writer and Watts Village Theater Company artistic director Bruce A. Lemon Jr. guest hosts the show. Then stick around afterward for a mixer with the performers and fellow attendees.

As part of this series, we'll be hearing true stories from people of different walks of life and diverse experiences. While all of our programming is intended to be inclusive and for a broad audience, it's possible certain themes or language may not be deemed appropriate for all ages. If this were a movie, we'd probably rate it PG. If you'd like more information or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly at events@kpcc.org. Thanks!
