11: Oral History Project - Julienne Dolphin Wilding
For the Oral History Project today, we’ve again brought together 2 people from 2 different generations, again to discuss their unique shared experience of being women of colour and spending time in care.
Like Marine, who you heard in the last episode, Julienne also grew up in the Barnardo's girls village in East London.
Julienne is in conversation with Irene, a young woman who has also spent time in care. You met Irene in the last episode, she was the young woman talking to Marine.
Among the many things they talk about, they share their thoughts on the term ‘mixed race’, Julienne explains why she always supports the Indians in Cowboy and Indian films, and she reveals how she tracked down her father, who just happened to be living on the very same road as her best friend.
The purpose of this type of conversation is to give 2 people, one older and one younger, the chance to compare and contrast a shared life experience.
They get to swap some of the wisdom and knowledge they’ve gained on their respective journey’s, and we get to learn something too.
