Napa Native Alexandria Brown Uncovers the Valley’s 'Hidden History'
Early Wappo American Indians in Napa Valley called the region "talahalusi,” meaning "beautiful land.” They shaped the region, as did the African American farmers, Chinese laborers and Mexican guest workers or "braceros" who followed them. Yet, despite their influence, these communities are often left out of Napa Valley history. Alexandria Brown, a Napa native, sought to change that. She researched the daily lives of these influential groups for her new book “Hidden History of Napa Valley.” Brown joins us to discuss the book and the overlooked parts of Napa’s history.

Valerie Jarrett: Politics, the Obamas and Finding My Voice
Despite the almost constant streams of media reporting on the White House, very few people know what really goes on in the West Wing. Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to the president in the Obama administration, is one of those people. From the day she interviewed a young Michelle Robinson in July 1991 to the night of January 20, 2017, when the first family departed the White House, Jarrett has been a trusted confidante and a close friend of the Obama family. In her book, Finding My Voice: My Journey to the West Wing and the Path Forward, Jarrett shares her story of growing up with American parents in the town of Shiraz, Iran, living in Chicago during the civil rights movement and ultimately finding her voice in public service. She led the Obama administration’s criminal justice reforms, advocated for women’s rights and political empowerment, and fought to improve the lives of working families. Join us for a conversation with the woman The New York Times called the “ultimate Obama insider.” She will share her uniqe perspective into the inner workings of the White House and the inspiring story of how she got there.
