Description: Several years ago, the Pratt Institute Center for Community and Environmental Development (PICCED) received the support and encouragement of the Ford Foundation to initiate an Oral History Project that would capture the rich history of the CDC movement from the perspective of some of its founding leaders. PICCED is a university-based technical assistance and training organization that has assisted in the creation of many CDCs, including one of the nation's first -- the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation. As part of PICCED's Oral History Project, James Briggs Murray of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture conducted in-depth videotaped interviews with the founders, leaders and supporters of 19 CDCs across the country. These videotapes will be available to researchers, scholars and other interested individuals as part of the Schomburg Center's permanent collection.
