Newburgh Media Project

Newburgh Media Project. Listed in Radical Software, Spring 1971. "Newburgh Media Project was Ford Foundation supported designed for high school kids to use media in the community (69-70). Cable access was there for the asking. Censorship became a problem when kids showed tape over cable from Cambodia Demonstrations in Washington. Project has lots of such hassles with school board etc. Best thing about it is that right now the kids are working towards getting accesst to equipment and doing it on their own through Things, Inc.
