About the speaker
Pendarvis Harshaw is a journalist and educator from Oakland. He is a graduate of UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, as well as Howard University’s School of Communications. Pen is a published journalist with bylines from Youth Radio, Fusion, The Huffington Post, National Public Radio and more. From 2011 to 2016, he ran a website dedicated to documenting the wisdom of elder African American men in his community, called OGToldMe.com. From this project, he produced a coming of age memoir, which has garnered attention from The Fader, KQED’s Forum, and the LA Times.
Founded in 1993 in Berkeley during a period of heightened youth violence and homicide, Youth Radio was established as an outlet for Bay Area youth to process their experiences and provide an alternative perspective to the prevailing media dialogue. In 2007, Youth Radio moved its headquarters to downtown Oakland, helping transform an under-invested part of the city into a world-class center of art, commerce, and culture.
Youth Radio operates bureaus in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Washington, DC.
We started TCHO to make the best chocolate in the world, and do it in a way that actually makes the world a better place. So we treat our growers fairly and we source ethically. We do it because it’s the right thing to do. And because it results in better chocolate. And that puts a smile on everyone’s face.
We serve the best quality coffee and tea because it’s the only way to treat our neighbors! Our baristas take great pride in welcoming you with a cup of that special something you crave – we want you to feel like you belong here.

❤️ #CMOak Gives Back
We’re collecting donations for #PeoplesBreakfastOakland — a local organization carrying on the community-based movements inspired by the Black Panthers! They’re in need of hygiene products to pass out to the local homeless community, such as small deodorants, menstruation products, socks, etc. Monetary support is also welcome!
We’re also hosting our first ever breakfast potluck! Please bring something to share with our community, big or small. We’ll still have beverages ready for you thanks to Farley’s and TCHO Chocolates! 🍳🍞🍎
