This pilot project paired young people and seniors in the Deanwood neighborhood of Washington, DC to conduct oral history interviews which were transcribed, and featured in a documentary film.
The narrators discussed their childhood, career, family life, and church activities. Several of the narrators were native Washingtonians, and several arrived in the city in the early to mid 20th century.
They contrast the environment in which they grew up with the one they see today. The project helped the students gain interviewing, video editing, leadership, and writing skills.
