This is a course that is place-based audio storytelling with the Detour software that is used in Stanford¿s Media X department.nn As an urban storyteller, the student learns that stories are place-based. Next, the student learns how to find a Narrator, who can tell the story, and; finally, the student must discover what the story really is.nn We will meet the President of SPUR, an important lobbying organization for Oakland. We will also visit rapper and political leader, Boots Reily, and Radio DJ JR, visit with the Oakland Mayor, Libby Schaaf, and finally an interview with Crazy Kyle, who is self-described as a ¿White Negro.¿ nn Thus, the Urban Storyteller is both an observer and a participant who speaks to us about race, ethnicity, hip-hop, and gentrification in the American City, such as Oakland. The Corner is the place-based site for the intersection of oral and digital culture. But the Walking Tour is more dynamic.
