Over the weekend, we participated in a panel at the 2009 OCA National Convention. After the panel, we learned about the Vietnamese American Oral Histories Project. (Thanks Jason W.)
The project is dedicated to collecting, recording, and documenting the stories of the thousands of Vietnamese Americans who fled Vietnam in the years following the Vietnam War. Their mission is to collect at least five hundred truly courageous and inspirational personal stories of success and struggles of Vietnamese Americans who have risked their lives to escape communist oppression to find freedom, and have toiled tirelessly to find financial success and happiness for themselves and for their families in the United States. Join the facebook group to learn more about the Vietnamese American Oral Histories Project and how you can help out.
Watching the trailer for the project reminds us of the film Journey from the Fall.
