This Wednesday, the Paul Robeson High School students part of the Crown Heights Oral History Project will showcase their work at a community event at LaunchPad. Over the past several months, the students have interviewed over 45 people who have lived in Crown Heights for over 15 years, and in the process they have learned a great deal about the history of the community and the people who populate it.
The event at LaunchPad will feature a formal listening period, as well as a donation of the interview archives from the project. Students will showcase highlights from the stories they recorded, and some of their interviewees will be on hand to contribute to the story telling.
Listen To This: Crown Heights Oral History Project is in collaboration with the Crow Hill Community Association and sponsored by NYC Grassroots Media Coalition and Super Wings NY.
WHEN/WHERE: Wednesday, June 9th, 7:00 – 8:30pm
Launchpad, 721 Franklin Avenue, Brooklyn New York
(Between Park Pl. and Sterling Pl.)
