West Grove 2008

In audio, multimedia on August 21, 2010 at 3:02 pm

More than 30 students from the University of Miami spent Election Day 2008 documenting the thoughts, reactions and interactions of people who live in west Coconut Grove, Miami’s oldest black community. Bahamian settlers founded the area now simply known as the West Grove in the late 1800s before Miami was a city.

The goal of West Grove 2008 was to give voice to an often-overlooked community, allowing residents to share their perspectives on the most memorable presidential election in modern times.

Multimedia Standards was created in Spring 2009 by Rich Beckman’s visual journalism class at the University of Miami School of Communication to offer insights and advice from industry leaders on multimedia journalism techniques, conferences and awards, project critiques as well as an in-depth list of resources.

As a student in the class, I interviewed one of the practitioners in the field, gathering and editing audio as well as helping to plan, research and design the site.
