On this week's Valley Edition: A street medicine team in Bakersfield educates people experiencing homelessness about COVID-19, and debunks myths about the vaccine. 

 

Plus, writer Mark Arax tells us about his research into the history of the Confederacy in the Central Valley.

 

And, as part of our collaboration with the personal history project StoryCorps, 15-year-old Emily Gorospe interviews her mother Valerie Gorospe about her grandmother, Teresa De Anda. De Anda became a fierce environmental justice advocate after a pesticide drift poisoned people in the town of Earlimart in 1999.
