TVbyGIRLS Video Vault Series: Street Scenes, Franklin Avenue

Take a look at some of the work from TVbyGIRLS 13 year history working with teen girls to make films that matter.   As we are developing a curriculum to use these films, we had a lot of fun watching them again.  We hope you do too!

Teens from wildly different communities hang out at the Franklin Library teen center. We worked with them to tell the story of their little part of the world.  Surprising and moving, the mix of people that share their stories tells a complex story of Franklin Avenues past, present, and future.  TVbyGIRLS worked with the Minnesota Historical Society through the Legacy Ammendment funds for libraries with the teen center at the Franklin Avenue Library.

Warning: some material from our Somali neighbors’ memories of the civil war may be disturbing to viewers.
