Finding a Common Path

Tampa, Florida Forum

Florida has always beckoned to newcomers, whether entering overseas or overland. From the peoples now known as “Seminoles” to the “snow-birds” and “undocumented immigrants” of today, how has the host-society dealt with incomers? Finding a Common Path is based on the Common Path documentary.

Finding a Common Path is a one hour public forum on Florida’s peoples, culture and migration. The documentaries were originally broadcast on October 16, 2000 on WMNF, the community radio station of Tampa, Florida.

Finding a Common Path is based on Listening Between the Lines “Document and Debate” format of using prerecorded discussions from experts to spark discourse among participants. Below the Audio streams are organized with live segments across from prerecorded segments.

Finding a Common Path features a dozen participants and a diversity facilitator addressing a number of issues using prerecorded segments as discussion prompts. Below you will find Real Audio Streams of the recorded discussions that took place on air.
