This one-hour podcast program introduces a studio audience to the LAVA Center's indiVISIBLE project. Through oral history/story and photographic documentation, indiVISIBLE will document the often invisible stories and faces of Franklin County’s indispensable agricultural workers and their communities. The podcast on March 9 features guests Michael and Carrie Kline who will share some of their phenomenal experiences with the process of gathering people and their stories together.
Hosted by award-winning journalist, visual artist and labor organizer/union representative Alfonso Neal, the podcast will also feature Doug Selwyn as Neal's co-host in conversation with the Klines. Selwyn is a retired teacher who brought the power of personal storytelling and photo-documentation to students throughout his career in K-12 and higher education classrooms. The Klines bring their collective experience of decades of gathering oral histories to the conversation, including how they celebrate people's lives by creating the spaces and conditions that invite them to tell their own stories in and on their own terms. They have recently worked with the town of Northfield to help residents there tell stories of the town's history, and they produce podcasts under the banner of "Talking Across the Lines."
In addition to documenting processes that indiVISIBLE will use to invite stories, this podcast will offer inspiration and ideas for anyone interested in telling their own stories or gathering those of others. Joining the audience of the podcast will give one an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the process.
indiVISIBLE is funded by Mass Humanities, The Markham-Nathan Fund for Social Justice, and Greening Greenfield.
