International Center to Initiate a Capital Region Immigration Oral History Project
Albany - Being initiated in 2015 by the International Center, the Capital Region Immigration Oral History Project will collect and preserve the firsthand interviews of Capital Region immigrants. ICCR will rely on staff, interns and trained community volunteers to conduct interviews to gather first-hand stories about immigrant experiences. First-person narratives, regardless of how long ago, are enlightening and provide insight into individual immigrant stories. In addition to audio- and video-recorded interviews, a sampling of individuals interviewed will be photographed and included in a proposed upcoming pictorial exhibit. If you or someone you know is interested in sharing your first-hand immigrant experience please contact the International Center at (518) 708-7608 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
