    Illuminate the Present: Thriving Internship Program and Newly
    Digitized Collections

Posted on December 11, 2014 



Media Intern Brenda Montaño

Our internship program attracts talented young folks from around the Bay 
Area -- including students from the University of San Francisco, San 
Francisco State University, and Mission High School. With many thanks, 
these many students have worked over the years to catalog our materials 
and develop curriculum on many historic issues that tie into ongoing 
progressive movements and issues.

Some of the recent projects include Black Panther Party newspapers 
<http://search.freedomarchives.org/search.php?view_collection=90> and 
Colin Edward's coverage of the Free Speech Movement 
<http://search.freedomarchives.org/search.php?view_collection=341> (FSM) 
on UC Berkeley's campus (just as the 50th anniversary of the FSM was 
marked). Check out our search site <http://search.freedomarchives.org/> 
to get an idea of its depth and scope of our holdings and our blog 
<http://blog.freedomarchives.org/> to see many of the interns' posts.

*Your ongoing support is absolutely essential to our ability to continue 
our work.* Your help makes possible all the educational work we do: the 
internship program, the audio and video documentaries and books, the 
online resources and digital search site, and our outreach efforts from 
our Mission district community out to the nation and the world. Most 
importantly, your help ensures that this resource will be able to serve 
generations to come.
