SUMMER PROGRAM ACTIVITIES!!!!
video project documents oral histories from Asian American youth and
families in the Detroit area. We will focus on Asian American
experiences as part of historical multiethnic and multiracial
residential communities who live in Detroit and have experienced the
many economic and social changes our city has undergone. There are
very few media forms of education that discuss the experiences and
issues found within Asian American communities. And there are even
fewer sources that cover these experiences specifically within the
Hmong neighborhoods in the Detroit and Warren areas. Our project
builds a space for Hmong youth to reflect upon their own experiences
within the historical context of Hmong migration and settlement. The
video project will also provide a space for our organization to
contribute to the educational needs within the overall Asian American
community. Youth participants will interview themselves, their
families, and community members. Mentors will provide trainings and
guidance related to interview skills and video editing. Our actual
final product will be an educational video that our group hopes to
distribute to other multiracial and multiethnic youth programs and
Popular Education Workshops
addition to the primary video project, youth participants will also
spend their time in political education workshops. This series of
workshops will focus on Asian American history, contemporary Asian
American politics, and the history of communities of color in Detroit.
We will provide a space for youth participants to learn and dialogue
about the histories and contemporary issues that impact their lives.
Such topics also pair well with the interview content for the video
Community Event to Discuss Chonburi Xiong and Police Brutality
event is still forming and DAY project mentors, youth, co-coordinators,
and advisors will work with the larger “Ad-Hoc Community to Support the
Xiong Family.” The event will take place on July 13th with the
sponsorship and support of Hmong community activist Tou Ger Xiong.
Road Trip to the Hmong Arts and Culture Festival
August we will take a two-three day road trip to the Hmong Arts and
Culture Festival in Minnesota. The festival is a fun and education
opportunity for DAY Project to distribute our video, explore what other
Hmong youth are working on, and meet other Hmong people from across the
