An Exploration of Our History Documentary Photo & Video Exhibit

By Doug Harris

RMHC is proud to support award-winning filmmaker Doug Harris and his documentary exhibit about the Exploration of Our History.

The Documentary Photo Exhibit is comprised of 86 photographs and 15 video clips from the award winning four-part An Exploration of Our History?documentary series that chronicled the history of the North Richmond community from a socio-economic perspective. The documentaries were?produced by teens?to chronicle and preserve the rich history of their West Contra Costa County community.

Photos for the documentary films were furnished by the Richmond Public Library, Contra Costa Contra Library, Contra Costa County Historical Society, and several community residents that were interviewed for the series of films.

The project was conducted through the Digital Technology Academy, a media arts program for teens in partnership with Contra Costa County, City of Richmond, the California Endowment, and Athletes United for Peace. The exhibit was made possible by a grant from the Richmond Arts & Culture Commission.

Below are some of the images from the documentary exhibit:
