The Moth untranslated? Group brings Detroiters together through storytelling in different languages

Aug 1, 2017

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.
