Voices of “Race” and Change: The Younger Generation features programs produced by college students and teenagers in culturally-diverse South Florida, including newer immigrants from Palm Beach and Martin Counties. The stories reflect contemporary experiences with race and ethnicity from the perspective of younger people’s lives and the experiences of their peers as well as elders, creating an innovative model for expanding the dialogue on differences in the U.S. across generations and cultures in candid, hopeful ways. Student commentators are under the direction of Dr. Kitty Oliver, an author, TV producer, and adjunct professor of oral history writing and race and ethnicity who directs the Race and Change Initiative in Florida Atlantic University’s School of Communication and Multimedia Studies. These programs are part of the Race and Change Initiative’s Youth Outreach Project, funded by the generosity of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Fund of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties and New Visions Educational Foundation, Inc. Email koliver@fau.edu or kittyo@kittyoliveronline.com
