Almost a year ago, I developed this video that summarizes a little bit the internalized shame of having grown up in a working class family in a highly segregated country. I hesitated a lot whether to show this piece or not. Today, it feels right to do it.
Special thanks to First Generation Digital Storytelling project. This initiative explores the use of storytelling and digital social media to give voice to the rarely heard narratives of First Generation college students and graduates. This project is part of a partnership between Jane Van Galen at the University of Washington Bothell and Class Action.
