Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion: “Our Stories, Nuestras
In 2017, students at Arizona State University conducted a research project
about their own family history, beginning with physical documents such as
photos, census records, and family trees. They also interviewed a family
member. Many students shared family stories of trial, error, and triumph. They
then put together a documentary exploring these narratives and informing
others of the importance of learning and knowing immigration history.
Through this project, students learned how their ancestors encountered life
and the migration/immigration process; they also have identified the value of
oral history and recording stories.
