KQED Forum broadcasts live from downtown Napa!

Friday host Mina Kim and guests will address the day’s news and take a look at the changing social and economic — as well as literal — landscapes of Napa. We’ll look at the synergy — and tensions — between the wine and marijuana industries. We’ll examine concerns over vineyard development, water, and the environment in Napa. And we’ll talk with historian Alexandria Brown, author of the new book Hidden History of Napa Valley, which looks at how the African-American, Latino, and Chinese-American communities shaped the valley as we know it today.

Join the conversation!
