Inspired by The Question Bridge (Artist Chris Johnson), the Black Student Union at Chief Sealth International High School in Seattle, Washington, asked the student body: ‘What Questions do you have for us?’ and the students responded. The intention of the project is to raise the dialogue about racism and break down stereotypes both within the school and in our society.
Members of the Black Student Union selected the challenging and meaningful questions from those submitted by students, they recruited students to answer the questions on camera, they conducted the interviews, ran the audio and video equipment and selected the clips for the final cut. African American students volunteered to answer the questions off the cuff without knowing the question ahead of time. Tech support was provided by adult mentors including teachers and industry professionals. (Various, 30 min, USA)
