KPCC: UC Irvine Oral History Course Capturing the #Vietnamese American Experience

posted by Randall

Vietnam War MemorialThuy Vo Dang knows the silence that often follows after one asks an elder from the Vietnamese American community about their experience coming to America.

It’s something many are uncomfortable sharing.

“When it comes to private life and home space, that’s where we see the silences, and the ghostly haunting of the Vietnam War,” she explains. “If you think about refugee trauma and refugee experience—people have left everything behind and gone through really terrifying experiences in order to build a new life, a better life.

KPCC explored with Dang the wide range of history her project has captured.
