Here is Socorro being filmed by Dante Mozie for Medill News Service at the Northwestern. Only Martha and Socorro showed up for the filming. I think the rest are camera shy. I found out the piece will be about 2 minutes long. It's part of an arts/culture project called "Immigration in Chicago." There are 11 people doing these with different topics with sports being another one.
I went first to provide the background of the project. The only question that caused me to pause when I was asked why two members of the class did not make immigration quilts (you can see them in this photo). I basically told him that I had no desire to be the "police." That I viewed my job as a facilitator of creativity and expression. It will be interesting to see what happens with this. We can only trust that Dante will do a good job. Karen
