Somali-Bantu Refugee Oral History Project
This project explores the experiences of the Somali-Bantu community who resettled in the United States through the US Refugee Resettlement Program. This project is interested in exploring the role of (im)mobility as illuminated through the words of refugees themselves. Our intention as researchers is to offer an archival forum to disrupt, challenge, and catalyze conversations around current dominant public perceptions of refugees.
