This is a six- week summer program which will bring African American elders together with a diverse group of youngsters in the age range of 15-17 for the purpose of the elders telling their stories with particular emphases on the ways in which they have navigated the racial divide. The young people will conduct video recorded interviews with the elders, learn how to edit those interviews so that they can become short videos. The videos will be shown at the conclusion of the project to selected audiences.
There will be several days of orientation provided for the young interviewers and a schedule will be established for them to follow in order to get all of the interviewing done in a timely fashion. Once the interviews are concluded they will spend the remainder of the project preparing their video and a short description of the work that they did and its impact upon them.
The elders and the young interviewers will be invited to participate in at least two cultural enrichment events during the time of the project. One of the events will be a pilgrimage to the Equal Justice Museum in Montgomery, Alabama. They will be provided lunch or dinner on the days that they are conducting interviews, editing their work, transportation and general support and mentoring in all phases of the work. They will work a few hours a week but not every day.
The intention of this program is to provide a venue for a small group of African American elders and a diverse group of young people to interact with one another and to explore ways in which inter-generational dialogue might be fostered. Along with this the young interviewers will learn about interviewing, videography and marketing because they will assist in organizing the event that the Center will host to showcase their work at the end of the project. Additionally, it will provide the elders an opportunity to engage with a different generation about their life journeys and provide a possibility for the youth to enlarge their view of history.
