The Metro Detroit area is incredibly culturally diverse. The region is home to more than 30 languages, and in more than 600-thousand homes, a language other than English is spoken at the dinner table.
The group Relato:Detroit wants to bring those immigrant or bilingual speakers into the storytelling fold.
So it’s giving them a chance to share stories in their own language, without having to provide context or translation.
Jeni De La O of Relato:Detroit joined Stateside host Cynthia Canty to explain how this project brings Detroit's diverse communities together.
