Earlier this month, the Oakland Unified School District held its 29th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. oratorical competition to showcase young communicators. Some of the winners in that competition joined us on The View from the Bay.

They're all from Think College Now in Oakland. Ameerat Elebute and Hoai Tran both won first place for famous speeches. Chelesa Hong won second place for individual poetry and Robin Galvan won third place in famous speeches.
