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.
