Briana interviewed Lisa Loving, Dorian interviewed Apricot Irving, Erin interviewed Elodie Massa Allen, and Willie interviewed Yesenia Gutierrez. We also have audio from another Roosevelt Program: Deep Roots. This is a class where students write lyrics and partner with local musicians to put music to those lyrics. There is also a strong Civil Rights component to the program. The class took a trip to Georgia and Alabama to learn more about the Civil Rights Struggle, and the relationship of the struggle with song.
