Youth Cover Speak City Heights Event With Cell Phones

Students in the Mobile Stories program came to Speak City Heights’ Nov. 12 community event and forum at the Scripps Rady City Heights Wellness Center. The program, put on by local libraries and Media Arts Center San Diego, teaches youth to produce citizen journalism using cell phones.

With many involved residents, nonprofit representatives and local Councilwoman Marti Emerald present, the event was the perfect venue for the youth to hone their interviewing skills.

Below are two videos they produced. The first focuses on the refugee moms and daughters who cooked traditional East African foods for the event. They are part of City Heights Hope, a group that has grown from only offering Saturday cooking classes to providing a platform for refugee women to do advocacy work. The second is an overview of the day’s discussion on food justice.
