A Note on Interviews
Please note that this is a collection of grassroots interviews conducted by a small, non-profit organization. The purpose was to empower everyday people to tell their stories and craft their own narratives about their life experiences. In many instances, second generation Vietnamese Americans are interviewing their elders. Please forgive the varying quality of sound, video and interviewing abilities, as this was a volunteer project. The fact that this has been a grassroots, self-taught effort could be one of the archive's strengths, as it give us an insight into the process of how individuals and this community organization are crafting stories and an identity as a diasporic community.
