History is more than just information in a textbook. Hearing
about the past from someone who experienced it brings history
alive. That’s what Elizabeth Lay’s 9th Grade
Multicultural Education class discovered while making their
video. They were studying California History from the 1940’s
to the present when “Lucky” Ramsey, a graduate
of Oakland Tech in the 40’s visited their classroom.
Students document his interview and compare his experiences
“back in the day,” to their own.
