MID-CITY CIRCLE RECONCILIATION PROJECT

The Algiers Circle project will guide high school aged youth to explore the racial and multi-ethnic fabric of Algiers history through interviews and conversations with elder residents and historians. The goals of this project are to enhance the public understanding of various racial and multi-ethnic communities in Algiers, to facilitate relationships among youth from varying ethnic backgrounds, to contribute to the larger dialogue around racial equity and reconciliation that is occurring at the citywide, state, national, and international levels, as well as to encourage youth to invest in their community by learning and preserving the historical narratives that often go untold. Nationally recognized artist and activist Brandan “B-mike” Odums will train a multiracial group of 24 students to use their analytical abilities and creative talents to conduct and archive the interviews; to interpret the information acquired; and to depict their newfound knowledge via a public art installation.
