Bakersfield College History Professor Oliver Rosales is hosting a new series on Bakersfield’s CW 12 about California history. The show, “Our California Story: Community Stories and Digital Preservation in the San Joaquin Valley,” is a community engagement forum connected to the California History course students enrolled in through the Back to College program.

The shown will air Sundays at 12 pm on Bakersfield CW 12, through May 10.

Oliver will share with our community information about our local history, and encourage people to research and share their family stories.

Students enrolled in the class will be interviewing family and community members and will be submitting those stories to an online archive. In addition, students will explore and better contextualize their own family history archives and the ways that these personal items can contribute to community narratives.

As all stories are woven together, they will help paint new narratives of life and history in the San Joaquin Valley. It is important to preserve and share these stories, family documents, and photographs for posterity. The archive of student work will be available to the public and we will query public interest and potential donations as the students and project team begin to build the collection.

This is an opportunity for viewers to learn more about Central Valley history and become a part of developing our California story.

Many thanks to Manny De Los Santos for his hard work in putting together this television experience to our local community.
