BINcA Students Celebrate Bravery in Memoirs from Immigrant Youth
Boston, MA - Friday, February 10, 2017 - On Monday, the Boston International Newcomers Academy (BINcA) will host Celebrating the Upstanders in Our Lives: Memoirs from Immigrant Youth, a celebration of student writing. Tenth graders will share their personal memoirs.
After reading Elie Wiesel's memoir, Night, BINcA students have written memoirs about the moments of bravery and upstanders in their own lives, including several memoirs about students escaping civil war in their countries and how family members helped save their lives. The students also watched and discussed videos about the bystander effect, then wrote about the rise of hate crimes and the Syrian refugee crisis.
