This video was made through the Buffalo Youth Media Institute (squeaky.org/bymi), Squeaky's community history and youth media program targeting the diverse population of young people living in Buffalo and surrounding areas. Students are selected through a competitive application process. Combining media production, media literacy, and cultural studies in an intensive curriculum, our youth producers work with professional filmmakers and members of the community to create their own self-directed documentaries about Buffalo. Each season the Buffalo Youth Media Institute chooses a theme that allows students to explore local history, culture and social issues.
