BTC Host KATHY BARRETT interviews the brilliant DR. KITTY OLIVER, Producer, Author, Oral Historian, Journalist, Writing Professor Race and Ethnic Relations, about her groundbreaking work. The Race and Change Oral History Archive that she founded is one of the largest cross-cultural collections on race relations in the country.
CNN's "Black in America," has chronicled her inspiring work using THE RACE AND CHANGE Dialogue she pioneered. She records archival oral histories, produces television and Web radio programs, stages musical projects and teaches community outreach classes to engage native-born U.S. residents and immigrants in conversations about race and ethnic differences across generations.
Dr. Oliver's books, "Multicolored Memories of a Black Southern Girl," "Voices of Amera: Race and Change in Hollywood, Florida," and Multicultural Reflections on Race and Change," share her own migration from segregation to integration.
Dr. Oliver is the director of the multimedia website project THE RACE and CHANGE INITIATIVE at Florida Atlantic University.
