Documenting the documenting (Tennessee)

In the dorm at Borderlinks Karen, Viviana, Christina and Lucy work on editing the groups first documentary piece. 

The DukeEngage crew spent several days over the last week practicing their audio and photography skills. They then hit the streets of Tucson to interview locals about their perspective on immigration. The responses they gathered were then edited into one short slideshow. 

It's been really great to spend the last week in Tucson with this crew. I'm struck by their motivated and inquisitive nature. There's no doubt they are bringing a lot of heart to this work. 

Thanks for sharing the experience with me.
