With funding from the NEH, the Jacob Burns Film Center partnered with the Brooklyn Historical Society to establish Created Equal: Image, Sound, and Story. The program expanded the impact of the NEH-funded documentary series, Created Equal, by bringing history and media education to middle schoolers in Brooklyn, New York.
