The Chicago Freedom School, founded in 2007, provides leadership and social justice courses to primarily minority students in Chicago. Dr. Brier and the Read/Write Library seek to promote the creation and storage of oral history about the CFS and its students. This project provides interview formats, interview technology, and interviewing and digital archiving training to CFS students… teaching valuable skills while also providing insight into the lives of socially engaged young minorities and the tumultuous state of the Chicago Public School system.
