Tell About the South: Southern Mix
October 17, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Our lunchtime conversation will feature Southern Mix founder Anna-Rhesa Versola and undergraduate researcher Emmanuel Lee. Versola will discuss her work founding the project and her experience as a narrator. Lee will talk about the the interviews he conducted in summer 2018 with Hmong and Filipino community members in Hickory, NC.
Southern Mix was inspired by Asian American UNC alumni, and focuses on collecting oral histories from Asian and Asian American residents of the Triangle, of North Carolina, and of the larger region of the South. For this project, the SOHP is collaborating with the Carolina Asia Center and the Alumni Committee for Racial and Ethnic Diversity to gather these personal biographies. This project will include a wide range of stories of escape, immigration, and cultural assimilation.
This event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served. RSVPs to email@example.com will be appreciated but are not required. Our Center is located along free Chapel Hill Transit bus routes A, CL, D, F, NU, and U.
