Reading Immigrant Stories May 1st at IHRC

Students from the U of M present excerpts on May 1 from "Life History Project" reports that record the experiences of immigrants from many cultures in coming to the United States.

The program will include 20 students telling immigrant stories shared with them by elders from many communities. Students in a Post Secondary Teaching and Learning course taught by Molly Collins conducted interviews, wrote oral histories, and developed historical analysis skills as part of their training.

The public is invited to hear selections from those oral histories on May 1st from 12:45-1:20 p.m. in room 120, Anderson Library. Refreshments will be served.
