Road Trips Project

Many readers may have fond memories and photos of family or solo road trips over the years. The Road Trips Project preserves many of these travel pictures and perspectives from members of the South Asian American community. As contributor Neel Agrawal reflects, "traveling has a way of helping us navigate the many worlds that exist both inside and outside of ourselves." However, immigrants have often been excluded from these travel narratives about "the open road." This project reclaims space for their stories. On the Browse page readers can explore stories by individual (via the thumbnail and label) or location (via the pinpoints on the map). Each submission includes the name, starting point, destination, and date, as well as a picture, short story, and map displaying the road trip's path. The project also welcomes reader contributions on the Submit page. Road Trips is a project of the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA), a nonprofit striving toward "a more inclusive society by giving voice to South Asian Americans through documenting, preserving, and sharing stories that represent their unique and diverse experiences."
