Teens interview successful men

Crossing Fences is a fresh twist on the ancient tradition of passing along a society's memories, history and values from one generation to the next through storytelling and oral history. It's a neighborhood-based oral history project that pairs teams of teenage and preteen African-American boys with successful men from their neighborhoods. The goal is to connect generations and guide youth by positive example and to help them visualize what they can become. The boys interviewed the older men and documented their stories with audio recordings.  For full story click here.
