COVID University New York

COVID University New York (CVNY) aims to uplift the voices of communities hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic and preserve the stories of these vulnerable groups in a historical record. We talk to students, staff, and faculty at the City University of New York community and dive into everything from death and essential workers to protests and theater. CVNY will serve as an archive and a way to remember the experiences of people whose stories won’t make headlines. CVNY is a co-production of Racecar Radio and the Gotham Center for New York City History. Share your story with us at: coviduniversity@racecarradio.com
