Rich Newberg Reports Buffalo Library Collection
A Moving Image History for the Classroom-- Project creator Rich Newberg presents an overview of this black history video collection being offered to social studies teachers in schools throughout Western New York. Drawn from WIVB-TV Emmy Award winning documentaries, these teachable moments in time cover the African American experience in Buffalo from the days of slavery, through the Niagara Movement, and into modern times with the election of Byron Brown as the city's first African American mayor. Mr. Newberg offers compelling reasons why it is imperative that students understand Buffalo's role in the civil rights movement as well as the challenges that still face inner city residents. The project is sponsored by the Niagara Frontier Council on the Social Studies. It is produced in cooperation with WIVB-TV, the Western New York Library Resources Council, and the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library. This Vimeo showcase is produced by Rich Newberg and videographer Tom Vetter. It may only be used for educational purposes.
