CIVIC THURSDAY SPEAKER - John Beam, Head Football Coach, Laney College
Netflix's Emmy-nominated documentary series Last Chance U recently returned for Season 5 to provide an authentic look at the junior college football program at our own Laney College. The city itself, and more precisely, its gentrification, is a key character. At the center of the series is charismatic Coach John Beam, a fixture in Oakland football for 40 years, who cares about winning, but even more about the futures of the team’s resilient young men whose life challenges are extreme. Join us as we hear from proud Oaklander John Beam, who has trained NFL athletes and raised the ranking of Laney to among the top junior colleges in the country.
