Generation Freedom Tree – Oral History

In Summer of 2016, SLB Radio Productions, Inc., in partnership with Generation Freedom Tree, convened a group of students to conduct interviews with community leaders and mentors. Generation Freedom Tree’s mission is to educate, entertain, and create a place of freedom to one’s self and power. By allowing children and teens to have the freedom to be themselves, we allow them to truly THINK for themselves and teach one another.

Special thanks to Dawn Webb-Turner and the participating students: Abijah, China, Dejsha, Donald, Elayna, Elijah, Nicolette and Nyre.
