Do you remember the BERKSHIRE IMMIGRANT STORIES PROJECT?
The Berkshire Immigrant Stories Project was a grant funded program at BCC from 2016-2018 in collaboration with the Tenement Museum, the Housatonic Heritage, and MassHumanities. The stories highlight immigration and migration stories of the past and the present. Each story reveals one person’s family experience. Collectively, the stories tell America’s story and highlight the patterns that bind us together, no matter where we came from or how long we’ve been there. Our goal was always to GIVE HOPE & INSPIRE OTHERS! Read all stories here: https://yourstory.tenement.org/…/berkshire-immigran…/explore
We are very excited to be entering the next phase in collaboration with the Norman Rockwell Museum and their upcoming exhibit Finding Home: Four Artists’ Journeys.
Come and record your immigration story or the one of your ancestors (in audio or video) on Saturday, Sept 21st from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM.
Location: Blake Reading Room
