Journey to the White House

There is no digital divide when Daphne Bradford is around. Bradford, a digital media educator at Crenshaw High School, has been working with a group of students over the past year to teach them digital media skills and to understand the power those skills will give them. For kids from South Los Angeles, reared amid poverty, gang violence and educational challenges, the election of the nation’s first African American president is a powerful symbol. The message of hope that Barack Obama represents inspired Bradford to begin a campaign to take her students to the White House. They will not stop until the President and First Lady invite the digital media team to visit them at the White House. With the help of the John Lennon Educational Bus, the Crenshaw digital media team members have produced a video letter to President Obama. Stay tuned to find out when they meet their goal and head to Washington DC.

    Willa, thank you so much for your support. Our partnership with USC’s Annenberg School of Communications has enriched the lives of my students at Crenshaw and Dorsey.

  2. Ira Dotson says:

    Ms. Bradford is a shining example of bridging the gap between technology and digital divide for the less of them.
