This project is definitely one that inspires me! I was able to have a conversation with one of the creators and we spoke about the void of the storytelling that gets passed down in communities of color. The project asks participants to tell a story about their first day in America. These stories are told through text, voice, and video. The project focuses on primary South Asians, but I would love to do a similar project. There is an organization called Densho in Seattle that does something very similar collecting stories about the experiences of Japanese Americans in internment camps during WWII. They also attached curriculum for schools to discuss these issues. Stay tuned, as I build!
So much fight, commitment, and wisdom. The embodiment of freedom, justice and peace. A reminder that the truth comes to light if you stick around long enough to see it. Forever in our hearts… Nelson Mandela
I’m honestly not sure what the point of even acknowledging this is. It still confuses me to this day why we feel the need to tell countries who can and can’t have nuclear weapons when we ourselves have them. Let the UN handle stuff like this. Lets say a war does start with NK, what could we possibly gain? Whose side do you think China would be on? It just seems like a headache. Maybe I am ignorant and misinformed. Nevertheless just my thoughts.
