The ADOLESCENT MINORITY WOMEN AND MEDIA PROJECT

(1983 - 1984)


This all-day Saturday program (funded by the Women's Educational Equity Act (WEEA)), enrolled thirty females and ten young men aged 14-19 from four boroughs of New York City. The new shift was aimed at providing cable television opportunities for young women in urban settings. Field trips, guest speakers, and video presentations were part of the curriculum.

The program worked closely with the Institute for New Cinema Artists (INCA) which provided training for older economically disavantaged students in the New York City area. INCA was created by Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, with Cliff Frazier serving as the program director. Mary Johnson and Al Crawford instructors at INCA provided instruction for our program at Teachers College, Columbia University
