Digital Stories For RTTG Up!

For the past year we have been hard at work training 6 young BME people to interview members of the BME community in Bristol and Gloucester on their understanding(s) of race/ethnicity and then turning those interviews into digital stories.  Michael Jenkins, a young BME male from Bristol who was apart of BSWN’s train-the trainer series, ran this project.  He trained all 6 young people and helped them learn the art of editing to produce the stories we now can share with you all.  Under the “Race Through the Generations” tab you will find the 13 digital stories our young people completed along with their own stories.  Please look, comment, and enjoy. 

Coming soon: a documentary by Michael Jenkins that chronicles of the journey of our participants through the project.
