Immigrant Stories

Immigrant Stories helps recent immigrants and refugees create digital stories: brief videos with images, text, music, and audio about a personal experience. The IHRC shares and preserves these digital stories for future generations through the IHRC Archives, the Minnesota Digital Library, and the Digital Public Library of America.

Over 200 stories representing more than forty-five different communities are now part of the Immigrant Stories Collection. A National Endowment for the Humanities grant is now helping us collect stories across the country.
