Following the trial of the confessed killer of the Oakland journalist
MURAL FOR SLAIN JOURNALIST UNVEILED AT HIS ALMA MATER — FEB. 26
As a teenager with a stutter, Bailey spent a lot of time in the library at Hayward High School immersing himself in books so he wouldn't have to talk to people.
The stutter went away, but Bailey's love of the written word did not. He spent nearly 40 years in journalism before being gunned down as he walked to his job as editor of the Oakland Post on Aug. 2, 2007.
