Refugee Oral History Project

Overview

The Refugee Oral History Project aims to document unique experiences of displacement and migration of refugees and understanding them in relation to Jacksonville in a way that it involves engagement of the community and refugees and educates the public of refugees’ presence and history. This project should also counterbalance the focus on Miami as a refugee destination and multicultural city within Florida. Our focus on Jacksonville will help round out and deepen the understanding of refugee presence in Florida more generally and in cities in particular.
