In collaboration with The Museum of Chinese in the Americas, the Columbia University Oral History Research Office, and New York University’s Asian/Pacific/American Studies Program and Institute, ASHP/CML has received a $150,000 grant from the Rockefeller Foundation for The Chinatown Documentation Project (CDP).

The CDP aims, through facilitated dialogues and recorded oral histories, to foster thoughtful community conversations and reflections on the consequences of September 11 for Chinatown and its residents. The CDP will present these dialogues and oral histories over the Internet so that they might serve as a resource for the community’s articulation of its identity and defining of its future.

The gathered materials will extend the mission of The September 11 Digital Archive and enrich its already broad collection. For further information on the Chinatown Documentation Project, contact Fritz Umbach at:
