Roots with Wings

ROOTS WITH WINGS is an Oral History project and partnership between Floyd Story Center at the Old Church Gallery, Floyd County High School, and Radford University.  The Project plants the roots of intergenerational community relationships, while introducing state-of-the-art technology wings. These partners spend every spring semester working with Floyd County High School students and their teacher to instruct how to conduct ethical, methodologically sound interviews, record using audio and video equipment, transcribe, archive, discover themes, and create movies.  In 2015, 42 participants from 4 generations learned from World War II veterans and their families, while 73 community members followed the weekly activities via the blog:  www.floydstorycenter.blogspot.com.
