Witness To The Shooting Of Oscar Grant Talks About That Night

on Monday, Jun. 13th

Two years ago Youth Radio produced a video interview with Karina Vargas, a witness to the shooting of Oscar Grant. In the interview above, Vargas returned to the scene of the shooting for the first time since that night of 2009 and shared her footage of the shooting on the Fruitvale BART platform. Vargas told Youth Radio “no matter how much time passes, I’m never going to forget [the shooting]. 2009, that New Years, I’ll never forget what I had to witness.”

The interview was originally published in 2009.
