KIMBERLEY RICHARDS, 23, sits perched with her headphones on and laptop on a table, enjoying a rainy Easter Sunday at Cafe L'Aube, on Wallace Street near 16th.
Richards is a special assistant and African-American community-outreach coordinator for at-large Councilman David Oh, and is chair of the Black Film Advisory Committee.
"I wanted to start working with people in film within the city," says Richards. "There is a lack of platforms for the black film community."
On the weekends, however, Richards works on personal endeavors. She's found that her boss and colleagues are supportive.
"They are very receptive to it," she says. "The councilman wants his staff to be involved in the community and supports both our personal outreach and outreach within our job duties."
