Eventbrite - PSN Video Chat: Oral History in Movements Against Police Brutality

In this PSN chat we will share and brainstorm strategies for using oral history to document movements against police brutality and the experiences of the families and communities impacted by police brutality. Here, we can discuss different strategies for involving community members in this oral history work, supporting movements on the ground, and publicizing patterns of police brutality through alternative media. We'll also consider some of the ethical and practical questions that may arise in doing storytelling and documentation work related to state-sanctioned violence.

Chat Facilitators:
Amaka Okechukwu, organizer and researcher
Michelle Boyd, writer, scholar, independent audio producer (www.michelleboyd.net)
Sarah K. Loose, oral historian and community organizer, Groundswell Co-Coordinator
