The 2018 West Virginia Teacher Strike, As Seen Through the Eyes of Those Who Lived It

Apr 8, 2018

The 2018 West Virginia teacher strike earned international attention. In the weeks following the strike's end, The Charleston Gazette-Mail began a multi-media project to capture the strike using crowd sourcing and staff reporting.

In collaboration with West Virginia Public Broadcasting and documentary filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon, the Gazette-Mail produced a two part video series about the strike.

The series takes a look at how the strike unfolded, using video and photographs by staff photographers and video feature producers, and a host of photographs and videos shot by participants and onlookers of the nine-day strike that lasted from Feb. 22 through March 6.
