The Raitt St. Chronicles: A Survivors Oral History
The Santa Ana Public Library will partner with Cal State Fullerton's Grand Central Art Center to train teens to collect oral histories from the Townsend/Raitt neighborhood. Project mentors will train youth participants to collect, archive, and share the underreported stories of survival from one of Santa Ana's most at-risk communities. Over the course of 12 months the participants will record video interviews with survivors of violence and make them available on various social media websites. These will serve as the basis of a 15 minute mini-documentary on the history of the neighborhood that will be presented in various local venues as well as online.
