Well I’m glad you asked that question…We have been busy bees connecting with communities serving African immigrants to share our video stories and learn how they engage these young women in their communities. Here is one exciting example of how Threads of Our Fabric Project is sparking amazing conversations on college campuses:
Time: Wednesday, February 22, 2012 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Location: Cartoon Room of the Ohio Union
As part of the Threads of Our Fabric Project, the Multicultural Center, Office of Diversity and Inclusion and Society of Sisters proudly present “A Gathering at Lethee’Ma – Kitchen Fireplace.”
This interactive video, based on a conversation facilitated by Sharon Asonganyi, founder and director of the Threads of Our Fabric Project, features an organization whose mission is to engage and empower young, first and second generation African women through multimedia in their new communities. The evening’s dialogue will center on the sociocultural adjustment issues that are unique for this distinct group of African women. Intimate video stories of joys, trial and successes will be used to illustrate shared experiences and the sociocultural influences on an emerging population developing a new perspective in the fabric of American society. Welcome to Lethee’Ma!!!
Reception and Meet and Greet at 6:00pm; Event begins at 7:00pm-9:00pm.
