In December, Storyhouse interviewed Olyvia Green of Austin, Texas as part of a collaboration with Pease Elementary and the Austin Independent School District to honor her many contributions. Mrs. Green was the first teacher to integrate Pease in 1969 and taught there for 26 years. Storyhouse was stunned to learn that her story had not yet been captured and jumped at the opportunity to forever preserve her memories in the form of a Portrait Video. The interview will air on the AISD channel and Mrs. Green will be honored at an African American Heritage Month assembly where we will screen her Portrait Video. Mrs. Green's family and several historic centers will receive an edited version of her full interview for their family archives.
We'll keep you posted with updates as the project progresses!
