Nine Network of Public Media: Community Stories on Youth Initiative

Nine Network of Public Media offers digital story telling training to individuals and organizations to help them tell and share their stories of impact. On April 23, 2014 Nine Academy participants screened their digital stories. In this video, Nine Community Producer Joan Suarez brings awareness to the Bread & Roses Community Arts Program. This program is designed to connect African American youth with local historical figures from the past. Through focusing their large paper mâché puppets on a few select individuals, they are able to learn about their own heritage, as well as work together as a team.
