Boise Voices is an intergenerational Oral Histrory Project, founded by Apricot Irving. This project pairs at-risk youth from Albina Youth Opportunity School, and Boise Elementary School, with Boise Neighborhood Elders in order to preserve the history of the neighborhood.
The culmination of this project will be a publication of a "Boise Voices" website which will allow visitors to access historical information about the Boise Neighborhood, as well as listen to excerpts of the recorded interviews. A "Boise Voices" audio CD will feature additional material from the interview
We talk with Founder Apricot Irving about the Boise Voices Project, and listen to elders talk about the Boise Neighborhood.
Thanks to Apricot Irving, to the elders involved in the project, and to Kennedy, Janaia, Noah, Kane, Nila, Dominique, and Melissa from Boise Elementary, and to Klya, Sandra , Sherman, Darren, William, Sean, Sam, and Shaelynn from Albina Youth Opportunity School for conducting the interviews.
