“Voices of Midtown” is an ongoing special project developed by the student-reporters enrolled in NNB. Each episode tells the story of a person with strong connections to Midtown, whether they live, work, or participate in any form in the daily life of this historic neighborhood.
All stories are told in a first person in a “slice-of-life” format. Student-reporters used a variety of media equipment and software to create their own thread in the tapestry that “Voices of Midtown” represents. These first stories are a test-run for the project and illustrate the project’s overall potential and scope.
NNB’s goal is to keep the project going through community partnerships that will allow better quality in equipment and production values. We sincerely hope you enjoy meeting the people who represent the wealth in history, experience, and culture of this historic community.
