Propel Homestead Afterschool Oral History Program 2015


In Spring of 2015, SLB Radio Productions, Inc., in partnership with Propel Homestead, convened a group of middle school students during their afterschool program. While learning about digital audio recording, the students also spent time discussing attributes of role models and important issues within their community. They then conducted interviews at the Rainbow Kitchen. With support as needed, students then arranged and edited these interviews.

Listen below for the interviews, their reflections and their thoughts on their neighborhoods.
