Storied: San Francisco

May 21, 2019

To help elevate the voices and stories of Black San Franciscans, we’ll be rerunning those episodes the rest of this week.

Bernadine Sewell has an alter ego: Pinky Winchester. When you meet this incredibly colorful woman, you know why.

She and her daughter went through the La Cocina program and opened their restaurant, Pinky and Red's, in the Berkeley Student Union building last summer. This podcast is Pinky's story of growing up in Detroit, moving to California, going through La Cocina, and opening her own business, which, it turns out, is only the second black-owned business on UC Berkeley's campus since 1868.

Join us Thursday when Pinky will share stories from her first year running Pinky and Red's.
