PSU | Capstone Course | Felicia Williams | firstname.lastname@example.org PSU | Capstone Course: Fall Term 2009 Civil Rights Movement in Portland
We had to cut the documentary portion of the course due to time constraints, but we are still interviewing and creating an archive. If you know someone who is interested in filming a documentary, we’ve collected a lot of great stories and there are a lot of people who would love to watch it!
The Civil Rights movement changed the way people thought about race and equal opportunity in America. This course will examine how the movement happened in Portland as students record oral histories from African Americans who fought for Civil Rights in Oregon. The interviews will then be digitized and uploaded to the Internet and students will use photographs and clips from the interviews to create a video documentary that can be used publicly.
