Sandra Torres, VOTL’s production team research assistant, presented Stories of Struggle: Work Histories of the Lumbee at the Impact Conference, the largest service-learning conference in the nation, held in Los Angeles, CA this February. Her workshop introduced the three-year service-learning project that led to the making of Voices of the Lumbee and screened behind-the-scenes videos and opening segments of the film. She also shared archival research and led a workshop for members of the audience (students, teachers, and activists) to explore their own work histories. Thanks, Sandra, for all your hard work!
