Remembering Refugees in Jacksonville, Florida: Oral Histories of Resettled Refugees

We have completed 16 interviews with refugees who have come to Jacksonville, Florida, for resettlement to date. The videos below are an edited compilation of select interviews and a full interview of one of the narrators.

A full set of transcripts and audio recordings for the interviews will be made accessible through UF Samuel Proctor Oral History Program (SPOHP) by December 2018.

This project is supported by the Florida Humanities Council.
