The Pittsburgh Refugee Stories Oral History Initiative
Why do people from all corners of the Earth seek refuge in America? The Pittsburgh Refugee Stories Oral History Project aimed to understand the refugee crisis from individuals who have survived it. Understanding the condition of settled refugees in America provides a unique socio-cultural lens on our identities and values as Americans, refugees, Africans, students, workers, families, and others. This oral history project partnered with refugees from central Africa to better understand experiences, values, and identities in ways that are accessible to participants, their families, and communities as full partners.
