This collection is a set of interviews with refugees who originated from Congo, Iraq, Burundi, and Ethiopia. The project was conducted by the resettlement agency, Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley, in collaboration with university students and refugees. The aim of the project was to archive stories that the community and local refugees desired to preserve and access for years to come. The interviews were conducted by journalism students from Miami University of Ohio in October and November of 2019, at the Dayton Metro Library Main Branch.

For more information on this collection, please view the collection finding aid or visit Wright State University Special Collections and Archives.
