I am a high
school student in Florida,
and my sister and I created History Heard to make research for history projects
more interesting, valuable, and fun! We know how history research can become a
bit tedious, so we've employed the technology that we students use
everyday--YouTube videos. History Heard is a database of video interviews
created by students that helps to explain and explore history from the
eyes of people who witnessed it. You probably know someone who had a
special perspective on our history. Perhaps they were a part of the Civil
Rights Movement, played as a professional athlete, fought in WWII, or
remember the Great Depression. Perhaps they were in a rock band during the
1960’s, or maybe they just remember what life was like in your home town “back
in the day.” As we like to say, “everyone has a story.”
welcome to use our online videos as primary sources as you do research for
history projects. History Heard is completely free and easy to use.

can help by conducting an interview for History Heard. Talk to your
teacher about creating History Heard videos as a class project or extra credit,
or simply conduct one on your own.
