2276Re: Chicago born & raised in mixed family
- Jan 10, 2007Hi Wei Ming,
The summer camp you are running sounds awesome.
I wish there was something like that in
Chicago when I was growing up....or even now.
I'm Wei Ming Dariotis, from San Francisco. Chinese Greek
Swedish Scottish English German and Pennsylvania Dutch.
I teach a course on Asian Americans of Mixed Heritage
at SFSU and I serve on the Board of iPride and I
used to serve on the Board of Hapa Issues Forum.
I also helped start FUSION, the summer camp program
for mixed heritage and transracially adopted kids
now offered by iPride in the Bay Area every summer.
I'm particularly interested in the literature, art,
and culture of people of mixed heritage--how we express
our experiences, how we create images of ourselves to
counter both the stereotypes and the invisibility.
