The Pathways to Freedom Digital Narrative Project

The planning and alpha-level prototyping of a web and mobile-based resource that would facilitate public access to digital content on the African-American Civil Rights Movement created by collaborative, interdisciplinary teams of undergraduate students.

The digital content created by Pathways to Freedom students and faculty will feature a variety of media, artifacts, and documents with a primary focus on local civil rights oral histories mapped to archival documents and specific Brooklyn locations. It will be produced by undergraduate students and their professors in Pathways to Freedom as well as undergraduate and graduate Computer Science and/or Media Arts students, with the support of faculty and IT specialists, and will have enduring value to the academic and broader public, including middle and high school groups as well as other college students. Through an innovative use of existing digital tools and technologies, the prototype will combine oral history interviews with images of archival documents and interactive maps, enabling those artifacts to be seamlessly integrated on a variety of platforms including the Internet, a digital repository, and mobile devices.
