ABOUT THE PROJECT

PEOPLE

Community Reporting Project

2005-2006: The first Mills College public radio reporting class took on the hefty subject of redevelopment in Oakland. We studied the history of urban renewal and development policy and then students chose stories about current development in Oakland: their reports ranged from an exploration of citizen committees to oversee development to new urbanism to the uses of eminent domain. These two half hour mini-documentaries aired on NPR-affiliate KALW (91.7 FM) in San Francisco in January, 2006. The Mills College Public Radio Reporting class of 2005 was awarded "student journalist of the year" by the Northern California Society of Professional Journalists.

2006-2007: Five Mills students worked with seasoned journalists to create radio reports examining the theme of the generation gap.
