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.

one step to a better LA

The Country we live in today is filled with so many different types of races and cultures, and so many people with different ideas that if collectively put together can benefit the world to an great extent. This is one of the reasons i believe that a coalition is needed in america today, especially Los Angeles. Los Angeles is a prime example of a city in need of a coalition. Today in our society their are various amounts of different cultures that hate each other for no apparent reason. One of the biggest race issues going on in Los Angeles is the Black vs Latino feud. Im not sure where this feud started but its ridiculous. If these two cultures where able to put there difference aside and instead worked together to help restore their communities and image back to a way that people didn't fear them and actually  respected them as the actual intelligent people they are, and not the savages animals they hear about, would help make Los Angeles a better place to live in.

my Tom Bradley experience

The experience about editing my first video was amazing. I've learned how the magic works behind the camera, how a single piece of scrap can become an awesome master piece. I realize how hard it is, but how easy they make it seem. I'm really glad to had this opportunity and have the chance of watching Carlos A. moves in slow motion is priceless!
I think since now I'm going to start watching the documentaries from a different perspective.

EDITING TB VIDEO

Today was a good experience editing my TB video. Since I have been involved with the tom bradley project I have learned the importantance in coalition building. Coalition building has taught me that in order for a movement to happen we have to work together  make a difference. I had a chance to interview candice and what I learned was that Tom Bradley was influencial  in her life by letting her be involved in this program about bradley. I really like editing the film I think it's important to learn different skills since  technology is getting so advance every day.

The world today

Today In this world People should always know what coalition is. People always try to hide the truth and keep it underground. but our youth needs to know that the people we sit by are there for a reason. and reason should be explored to newer things. diversity and coalition is the words of the future. and its up to the adults that learned it first and the youth to take it in and expand it. there isnt nothing wrong with added someone to your circle

I believe Mayor Tom Bradley did a lot for the Los Angeles community. More people should know about him because he helped change the world. He was an outstanding leader and needs to be recognized for what he has done. Mayor Tom Bradley is a great person and I believe he should be put in our history books. Without him he the Los Angeles community would not be the way it is now. I thank Mayor Tom Bradley for all his work.!!

Just finished editing my interview with Oliver. It was twenty three minutes long and I cut it down to five minutes. It was a two hour process with interuptions but I got it done. Oliver helped me a lot and it came out great. I felt it was a good opportunity to get the feel of working with final cut pro. I believe this experience was great because I was able to learn about Mayor Tom Bradley who I knew nothing about prior to joining the Urban league and CD Tech.
