The Sharing History Initiative is Underway!

School is officially in session, and teachers who received curricula and copies of The Voice of Witness Reader through the Sharing History Initiative have already got their students digging into the stories inside.

Here’s what they have to say so far:


“With my 8th graders, I have already read stories of wrongful conviction and experiences of prisoners during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

I have been building units around these focus topics, and my classes have never been more engaged. I’ve had students open up about their parents’ incarcerations. I’ve been able to connect wrongful conviction to school discipline and relevant concepts like that. Class conversations and debates are so powerful.

—Graham Knisley, Valley Prep Academy, Louisville, KY


“The journalism class at The Academy at Palumbo is Philadelphia is absolutely in love with the narratives in The Voice of Witness Reader. The oral history narrative by Adama Bah helped inspired all of us to write, direct, and produce our own oral history mixed media projects focusing on defining moments in our lives.

—Robert Paul, The Academy at Palumbo, Philadelphia, PA
