Crossing Fences — A Community Celebration

November 15, 2012 – 10:56 am | 1,539 views
CF2 In Summer 2012, SLB convened groups of African American male students in Homewood, Hazelwood and the Hill District. While learning about digital audio recording, each group also spent time discussing attributes of male role models and identifying African American men with a connection to their community that could be interviewed. With support as needed, students then arranged, conducted and edited these interviews. The results were published in Homewood Voices, Hazelwood Voices and Hill District Voices, each a full-color book (with CD) with 1,000 copies distributed throughout the community.
