Youth Speak

Share Your Tom Bradley Story is an innovative program to post and share stories about Mayor Tom Bradley and his legacy. It is an opportunity to bridge cultural and racial barriers, and facilitate a multi-generational understanding of our shared history.

Spring 2012. A group of Los Angeles high school students from Dorsey, Jefferson, Santee and Crenshaw are participating in the new Mayor Tom Bradley Intergenerational Leadership Summit and Video Training Program. This pilot project is a partnership between the filmmakers, the Los Angeles Urban League www.laul.org and CDTech www.cdtech.org. It is sponsored by WIB and ONESOURCE.

And a big thank you to the editing instructors who worked with these students on their videos. They are: Gabriel Diamond, Bill Megalos, Oliver Shipley, and Jesus Silva! And to Michelle Crenshaw and Oliver Shipley who taught the youth various camera and audio skills.

Photographs courtesy of: the Tom Bradley family, the Tom Bradley Legacy Foundation at UCLA, the California African American Museum and the City of Los Angeles' Office of the Chief Legislative Analyst.

My name is Osmin Alberto. I am from El Salvador, I have approximately 3 years living in the United States. I recently graduate from Thomas Jefferson High School and I’m planning of becoming a civil engineer with a minor at Graphic Designing. I just want to add that I feel proud of being part of this project with Urban League, CD Tech and the opportunity it gave me of meeting intelligent individuals. It is a great project that enables students to become dedicated while having a good time with classmates. I wasn’t to thank the staff and classmates for this wonderful opportunity. Thank you.

 Hello, my experience in doing this was really awsome i learned a lot of new things that i didn't know. For example i learned how to cut the parts of the videos. I also learned how to edith the parts and put them together. I also learned how to put different pictures together and mix music together. This experience was really good.
