Here is my family movie:
Initially coming into this oral history project, I simply intended to talk about the themes of poverty, abuse, and divorce in both my family movie and blog. However, as I considered the amount of material I had to leave out of my movie in order to avoid surpassing the 5-minute limit, I realized my family’s story was too rich in relevant material to simply limit it to the same three themes. Thus, while my movie covers my parents’ upbringing, meeting, relationship, and divorce, this blog will pick up where the movie left off and cover my experiences as they relate to my parents’ child-rearing style, the influence of socioeconomic status in my life, and my experience as a member of a former step-family. Enjoy!
