This clip is based on my perspective of racism, based on my identity as an Asian. It was difficult for me to make this story and show it to the whole group, but I felt like it was a perspective that is not heard enough and everyone has a little bit of blame in the situation.
This story was created at the train-the-trainer workshops (hosted at Mandela CLC and Camfield Estates (Neighborhood Networks Tech Centers)) youth learned digital storytelling and multimedia production techniques, along with creative ways to articulate their ideas and express themselves. Using a ‘train the trainer’ approach, they also learned how to teach digital storytelling to younger children in urban communities, most specifically as part of pilot projects at lower Roxbury housing development summer programs. This project will also explore using geomapping techniques to distribute the product and encourage dialogue, for instance using Google MyMaps. We hope to frame these stories around capturing the grassroots, local stories, history, and tradition of lower Roxbury.
