Digital Stories

 “Digital storytelling at its most basic core is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories.” 

      (Robin, 2018)

Digital Storytelling Process


C-HeARTS partnered with people from the C-U Community to create digital stories that focused on community healing:

A Human Touch

“Let me take you by your hand.”


Aligning Destiny “

“The power of potential.”


Let’s Change Together

“What we need is nurturing environment that is close-knit.” 


The Feeling of Home

“Home is a place that recharges your spirit.”


The Killing of Kiwane Carrington

“Militant Black community activism promotes healing by bringing justice”
