How can we harness the power of media to challenge conventional narratives about history, community, and public policy? This panel showcases a collaboration between archivists, media makers, students, and educators to draw out untold stories from historical footage. Our case study specifically examines the remixing of interviews of Civil Rights organizers, anti-Vietnam War activists, and scholars who were filmed for the documentary Howard Zinn: You Can’t be Neutral on a Moving Train (2004). Participants will walk away with a model for building collaborations to remix and reuse archival documentary materials to tell new stories.
