Abstract

This project provides an overview of the importance of cross-cultural collaboration between African-Americans and Hispanics through an arts technology project involving video recording, editing and production. This video project demonstrates and recognizes that cross-cultural dialogue and collaboration occur in professional, educational and social spaces, and, in particular, at CSUDH. The project records and edits the performances of a Chicano/a class cross-listed with a Music class at CSU Dominguez Hills, which brought together students of diverse backgrounds with professional musicians with extensive experience in working across ethnic and cultural lines, to produce a musical performance. The class' performances represent an example of positive collaboration between African-American and Hispanic students, evidence that often remains invisible in discussions about the relationship between African-Americans and Hispanics. The project also illustrates how we can use technology to produce educational materials, especially in the area of cross-cultural collaboration between African-Americans and Hispanics.
