Video of the Oppressed

Donna DeGennaro from the University of Massachusetts, Boston joined the colloquium via Skype, from the Dominican Republic. Donna worked on a video project in the Dominican Republic. The first video shows one of the girls that Donna worked with in her home introducing her family. The second girl Donna worked with had a brother who served as a translator. Each of the three girls wrote a story to be created digitally. Donna used Google translator to facilitate discussion when no human translator was available.
