The students attend Vickie Malone's Local Culture course. This represents the first collaboration of another school with Urban School's Telling Their Stories oral history project and the first focusing specifically on stories from the civil rights movement of the early 1960's.

See a promotional micro-documentary on this project, produced by students at The Urban School of San Francisco.
