aftertheshootingUNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication undergraduate and graduate students in assistant professor Chad A. Stevens‘ multimedia narratives class – with the assistance of fellow visual communication professor Steven King – have launched aftertheshooting.com in response to the Feb. 10, 2015, #ChapelHillShooting.

“As students, members of the community and journalists questioning why this happened, they created an interactive tool that fostered discussion and connection — and a new approach to interactive storytelling,” Stevens said.

The students gathered journalists, health professionals, religious leaders and gun control experts to discuss their field of expertise as it related to the shooting — ultimately creating a multimedia archive that captures a community searching for healing and understanding.
