Digital Movies 2012

The Fall 2012 class of “History 17 CH: Chicano/Latino Histories” proudly presents the following “Digital Histories.”

These short movies were made by students from Claremont Colleges who enrolled in History 17CH, an introductory level history class on Chicana/o and Latina/o history. Each student chose a topic related to the class, researched it using historical primary and secondary sources, and then wrote a paper. Using iMovie, they then converted their paper into a 3-5 minute movie meant to teach other youth and connect them to the dynamic stories that make up our collective past.
