The tenth anniversary of September 11 is approaching and to pay tribute to those affected by the tragedy around the world, the New York Times and YouTube have launched a September 11 YouTube channel featuring special content from the New York Times, archived broadcasts from September 2001, and personal stories and tributes, and they want you to share your 9/11 story.
In a blog post this morning, YouTube asks you to share videos about your strongest memory of September 11, how the event changed you and what you lost or gained because of 9/11. You can submit a video via the YouTube channel page at YouTube.com/September11. According to the YouTube blog, a selection of the best videos submitted will be featured on the New York Times Website and YouTube homepage next month on September 11.
Olivia Ma, YouTube News & Politics Manager, writes, “Through telling and sharing stories, we can all hope to make sense of an event that, for many of us, was one of the defining moments of our lives. Thank you for sharing yours.”
Find out more about the project in the video below. Will you be uploading a 9/11 video to YouTube for the New York Times and YouTube September 11 project?
