Youth Speak

Share Your Tom Bradley Story is an innovative program to post and share stories about Mayor Tom Bradley and his legacy. It is an opportunity to bridge cultural and racial barriers, and facilitate a multi-generational understanding of our shared history.

Spring 2012. A group of Los Angeles high school students from Dorsey, Jefferson, Santee and Crenshaw are participating in the new Mayor Tom Bradley Intergenerational Leadership Summit and Video Training Program. This pilot project is a partnership between the filmmakers, the Los Angeles Urban League www.laul.org and CDTech www.cdtech.org. It is sponsored by WIB and ONESOURCE.

And a big thank you to the editing instructors who worked with these students on their videos. They are: Gabriel Diamond, Bill Megalos, Oliver Shipley, and Jesus Silva! And to Michelle Crenshaw and Oliver Shipley who taught the youth various camera and audio skills.
