This is a very informative and explicit introduction to exhibition's photographs, interviews, and themes from 12 culturally specific communities. It uses a documentary tradition and the power of images and personal narrative to elucidate aspects of identity, community, and civic engagement within these communities. It includes an introduction and overview of each project site, and a how-to guide for documenting local communities through oral history and photographs. There is alos additional resources for instructors and easily accessible links.

The students can see examples of the lifestyle and hear an oral interview to get a real feel for the cultural lifestyle. This can be a powerful tool for the students

The website is very easy to use with a handy menu on the left side of the page. All links seem to work very well.
