About our class

Documenting Social Injustice is all about learning how to create media, and how to partner with advocacy groups and other classmates to help mobilize people to create change.

The class is a sort of boot camp for the media activist. We look at documentaries, media and art work, present web sites, trailers, share media activist techniques and learn how to use new media to get our messages out to a global audience.

Students are creating compelling stories with their writings, photographs, video interviews, and observational recordings, supported with well researched data, powerful music, and spoken word presentations.

Twelve students started creating blogs with their class writings, photo essays and media projects and will be sharing these through different forms of new media and social networking techniques.

As we communicate on this blog, and share media projects on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube we ask that visitors comment, share knowledge and ideas and suggest ways that we can create more effective activist media. Help us to CREATE CHANGE.
