"Hear Every Voice" Video Now Online!

Hear Every Voice: NYC and the National Park Service, a 12-minute video documenting a civic engagement project, can now be seen on the website of Channel Thirteen. This video was produced in partnership with Brooklyn College of the City University of New York and Gateway National Recreation Area. Created by Stephen Ogumah, the video engaged members of the Caribbean communities of Brooklyn and Queens in a dialogue about the uses of local park resources. This was one of the tandem projects created to coincide with the recent Ken Burns documentary about National Parks, America’s Best Idea, which aired in September 2009.
