Event Description

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, documentarian Ken Burns, along with numerous partners, has launched a national effort to encourage everyone in America to video record themselves reading or reciting the speech. The collection of recordings housed on this site will continue to grow as more and more people are inspired by the power of history and take the challenge to LEARN THE ADDRESS.

KCOS has received a grant to conduct ten local workshops related to this project in partnership with Latinitas. Who will be hosting a special video editing workshop for girls ages 9 – 13 on March 22nd, 2014.

There will also be a free screening event of The Address documentary by Ken Burns in April before it airs nationally. For more information about the film visit:

Our goal is to submit over 200 videos from El Pasoans reciting the Gettysburg Address. We encourage you to also be part of this project by uploading your own video too. Use the following widget for your submission and help us reach our goal!
