For All the World to Hear (2/15)

FATWTS_rflm121212A project of the CADVC, For All the World to Hear: Stories from the Struggle for Civil Rights, returns to campus Friday, February 15 at 10:30 a.m. in the Fine Arts Recital Hall.

For All the World to Hear: Stories from the Struggle for Civil RIghts is a spellbinding humanities project in which 10 Baltimore area seniors communicate personal stories about their involvement with the struggle for civil rights. A community outreach program of the CADVC, the project brings diverse seniors together for a series of oral history interviews.

The featured senior performers will work with UMBC to help them translate their stories into a digital video format. The final results will be published on UMBC’s digital storytelling site and distributed online via iTunes U. A short documentary film will record the entire program ending in May 2013 with the web launch of the digital stories.

A preview of the performance is available here.

This performance is part of the project’s four month tour with performances at local museums, college campuses, museums and parks.
