Gov. Jerry Brown has agreed to a series of interviews aimed at documenting his extraordinary life in California, going back to his years in the seminary all the way through his fourth term as governor, which ends in January.
The interviews will be conducted collaboratively by KQED and the Oral History Center at The Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley to provide a comprehensive oral history of his adult life.
In a series of recorded conversations, Brown will talk with KQED Senior Politics Editor Scott Shafer and the OHC about following his father Pat Brown into public service, including his terms as California secretary of state, governor, mayor of Oakland, attorney general and again as governor.
The conversations will also include his three presidential bids, his role in the global climate change movement and more.
KQED's Chief Content Officer Holly Kernan said the station is honored the politics team has been chosen to produce this series with Brown.
