RESEARCH 2015 - 2017
Here is what I have accomplished in the three years. 2015 - 2016. Created a team of people that were working in Silicon Valley of African American descent and aware of those people that were contributing to the work that was going on there. Formed a network of referrals for interview candidates.
interviews- fund raising/2015 - 2017
The digital-stories that will result in our in depth interviews, first hand accounts and remembrances of those African American members of the Silicon Valley story will fill in the blanks and re-connect the history of a community that grew from orchards to industry giants.
PRODUCTION & DISTRIBUTION/ 2016 -2018
Our final product measures up to the highest industry standards and is being presented on every outlet that will let it play. Our ultimate goal is to tell the history of Silicon Valley from the African American perspective. Who knows what else we will include along the way?
We are right on time
After our premier at San Jose City College the documentary has been shown at high schools, Public Libraries and corporations. An on-demand site has been established on vimeo.com a video streaming website. Colleges and corporations can rent the video for 72 hours. Further showings will take place at the end of March and in April. Plans are in place to develop a program around a showing with the support of the African American Heritage house in Heritage Park in San Jose.
minority contributions shared with generations
The story of the African American contribution to Silicon Valley should be shared with the young and old that are seeking careers in high tech. We have a rich history that must be shared. When you are confident that your people were part of the creation of an era you are most likely see your future as being much brighter and promising.
September 30, 2017 the premier of the film "A Place at the Table", was launched. Reaction to the film was immediate and positive. An effort has begun to get the film distributed to a larger audience to ensure that the history lesson is shared with all.
