Celebrate Valentine’s day with the Digital Diaspora Family Reunion Roadshow. Come and share your family photos and tell your own stories.
This is a participatory event, please bring 3-5 family photos with you.
Free, but an RSVP is required.
The Digital Diaspora Family Reunion Roadshow gathers family-photo collections from throughout the nation and maps images from across time, place, and genre. In addition to produced video and the live testimony of invited members of the San Francisco and Bay Area community — who will display photos and testify about their family experience — the DDFR Roadshow asks audience members to share the stage by showing their own family photos and telling the stories of love behind them.
Although focused on the black experience, the DDFR Roadshow is very much an inclusive event, and people of all backgrounds are encouraged to attend and participate. Using the power of new and emerging online social-media platforms, these stories will then be made accessible to current and future generations.
For examples of DDFR Roadshows in other cities, visit the 1World1Family website and the DDFR YouTube channel.
