New Roots/Nuevas Raices: Voices from Carolina del Norte

We last featured this oral history project in the 12-01-2017 Scout Report. It continues to offer visitors valuable insight into Latin American history and heritage. New Roots: Voices from Carolina del Norte is a collaborative oral history project from the Latino Migration Project, the Southern Oral History Project (housed in Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), and UNC Chapel Hill University Libraries. This collection features over 160 interviews with North Carolinians who immigrated to the state from Latin America. This collection includes interviews conducted in English and Spanish. Visitors can browse this collection by North Carolina county, the interviewee's country of origin, year of the interview (2011- present), or theme. Tagged themes include adult education, DREAMers and DACA, identity, migratory experience, and receiving communities, to name just a few. For social studies, Spanish, and ELL instructors, these interviews offer a rich classroom resource. As of this write-up, this project also includes three lesson plans designed to facilitate student exploration of and reflection on some of these interviews.
