Voices Project: Oakland-Flint Writing Project and Stockton Center Collaborate on Public History Initiative

The Voices project, a collaborative initiative between the Oakland-Flint Writing Project, the Stockton Center, and teachers and students in area school districts, aimed to allow K-12 students to explore the lesser-known history of their communities and participate in public history. The project included a digital exhibit of contributions from students and community members that showcased Flint’s history from diverse perspectives and voices, as well as a summer institute that invited K-12 teachers to campus and the Stockton Center, offering them skills and techniques to engage students in creative writing and public history. Funded by a CARES Act grant (see Building a More Perfect Union) from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
