Faces of my Community

FOMCwebBANNER

KRCB is proud to partner with students from Cloverdale  High School and Roseland University Prep in the creation of these unique interviews with folks in their respective communities.  The students, who have all been trained in listening and interviewing techniques by the Sonoma County organization Listening For A Change ( http://listeningforachange.org )were charged with identifying individuals in their community with whom they would explore questions such as What do you like about our town?  What do you wish we could change? How has it changed since you’ve lived here?  Who has power in our community? and so on.  This series of 10 short videos is the result.

Many thanks to all of the students participating as well as the teachers and administrators who worked with us to make it happen.  The videos will also appear on KRCB, Channel 22 throughout the summer and into the Fall.  In Cloverdale they will be posted on the Mobile History Museum Kiosk.
