Cultural Institution Historic Preservation Project

The Center for Communication and Development (CCD) was established in 1976 to serve as an information and communications vehicle for the African-American community in and around north Minneapolis and to increase the representation of African-Americans in the broadcast industry through training and on the job experience. CCD/KMOJ touts a rich legacy and vision of pride in African-American cultural values and traditions. This remarkable history and the story it tells needs to be documented, preserved and shared as many of the stations stakeholders are aging and this history is at risk of being lost. Tim Quan, a student in the School of Public Health, will document the history of CCD/KMOJ. The results will be used to add to the historical record and aid in the organizations development efforts.
