By Sabirah Mustafa - Growing up in Oakland I used to imagine I was the mayor. Playgrounds and basketball courts would stay open 24 hours if I had my way.  Big wheels and dirt bikes would be the official mode of transportation. Ice cream trucks would be posted on every street corner so my friends and I wouldn’t have to chase them down the block.
