Book Talk – October 29, 2018

EVC Book TalkCome join MASCLab and hear author, Steven Goodman, talk about his book, “It’s Not About Grit: Trauma, Inequity, and the Power of Transformative Teaching.” Goodman is the founding director of Educational Video Center, “a non-profit youth media organization dedicated to teaching documentary video as a means to develop the artistic, critical literacy, and career skills of young people, while nurturing their idealism and commitment to social change.” EVC has served many students, in which the book discussed some of the students’ stories and the obstacles they had to overcome, and how they used the power of storytelling and documentary to dismantle the social issues happening in their communities and have their voices heard.
