Zakiya Harris of Hack the Hood
For Zakiya Harris, growing up in East Oakland, Calif., meant navigating between two acutely different worlds every day. "I grew up in the hood, but I went to a very affluent school," she says. "So I spent my days being one of few black people, and I spent my nights being in a predominantly black neighborhood. I believe that really shapes the work that I do, because I've always been a bridge-builder."
