Get the full and truthful history of Birmingham's Civil Rights through the lens of youth justice leaders
Informed by galleries from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI), The Movement is a mobile app that aims to inspire participation in the modern day movement by sharing Birmingham's history through visual Stories and self guided tours called Magic Walks that weave visitors in and out of Birmingham’s downtown and neighborhood landmarks. History has proven that youth, who we call the greatest among us, shape movements and culture. That’s why this project features Gen Zs as budding historians and storytellers and entrusts them the tools to help guide and create the contents of the app.
I am a lover of people and progress. Working to change the world through stories. This project feels like an opportunity to finally give our people their flowers.
My philosophy is being a student of things that interest you takes you the farthest in life. This project is important to me because it's important to highlight how even small victories from people changed the trajectory for a lot of others.
