Photojournalism classes kicked off this summer's "One Block, One Voice program at the Unversity of Chicago, Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts. A quiet group of students of various ages quickly transitioned into active teams capturing outdoor and indoor activities around this community. Learning the role of a photojournalist, students became aware of the importance of being confident and fearless as they asked total strangers for their name and to take their photo. The confidence is building and this is only the beginning.
