Civic Stories Project photo essay #1: Beth Berry

Last November, I blogged about the invitation that several Northfielders got to participate in the American Conversations Program (AmCon) at St. Olaf, me included.

The project ended last spring and I got word last week from Eric Fure-Slocum, Assistant Professor of History, that the Civic Stories Project was now live on the Northfield League of Women Voters site.

St. Olaf students in the American Conversations 102 and Intermediate Photography classes worked in partnership with the League of Women Voters to create these photo essays about Northfield-area community leaders. The fourteen leaders profiled in these photo essays are involved in a range of political, civic, and humanitarian endeavors in the local community and beyond (more about the project).

I’ll blog one photo essay per day over the next two weeks.


See the background page on Beth Berry and the St. Olaf students involved, both those in the AmCon class and those in Professor Meg Ojala‘s Intermediate Photography class.
