We’re excited to announce the launch of theNew Roots/Nuevas Raíces website! This digital archive and information system is a joint effort between the Latino Migration Project, SOHP, and University Libraries under the direction of Dr. Hannah Gill. It’s a fully bilingual platform for sharing the oral history interviews collected as part of the New Roots: Voices from Carolina del Norte project, which focuses on stories of migration, settlement, and integration in North Carolina. Explore it now!
We thank the generous support of The National Endowment for the Humanities.
