Witnessing History

A collection of narratives of residents of the West Coconut Grove neighborhood during the 2008 historic presidential elections, bringing in underrepresented voices to the forefront of the project. About 40 people documented through audio, photos and video the emotions surrounding Election Day and stories of hope told by a small African American community, who voiced their perspectives and pride on a historic day in American politics. This project won First Place in the Student Interactive Multimedia Group Award in the 2009 Broadcast Education Association’s Student Competitions, and First Place in the 2008 NPPA Multimedia Contest.
