Abstract/Artist Statement

Stockton Speaks is an oral history project that showcases a collection of multi-cultural, multi- generational coming-of-age stories, from 54 individuals, in nine ethnic groups, from Stockton, California. Stockton Speaks is a collaborative effort between the City of Stockton, Jacoby Center at University of the Pacific and individuals representing a number of ethnic-based, non-profit community organizations. The project is made possible by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities as part of the Council's statewide California Stories Initiative. The Council is an independent non-profit organization and a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. In order to enhance the features of the site, we redesigned the web layout and built a search engine with both basic and advanced search options which allow users to navigate through all the stories on the site. Users may use the advanced search to search based on ethnicity, generation, gender and various search terms. We also created an administration page to help efficiently manage the site. From this page the administrator can add, delete and modify the two tables within the database that hold the stories and the searchable terms. They can also easily view the contents of these tables for easy reference and manageability.
