How can youth learn to harness the power of media to challenge conventional narratives about history, community, and public policy? We will learn about Chicago Slices, a project which trained youth in using freely accessible tools to produce videos and introduced media literacy concepts through the use of archival footage. We will share how the project began, what resources were developed for teachers and youth, and hear from youth participants.
