Ground One: Voices from Post-911 Chinatown

Published March 30, 2011

ASHP/CML’s in collaboration with the Museum of Chinese in the Americas, the Columbia University Oral History Research Office, and NYU’s Asian/Pacific/American Studies Program and Institute recently completed Ground One: Voices from Post-911 Chinatown. This project provides an in-depth portrait of the ways in which the identity of a community, largely neglected by national media following 9/11, was indelibly changed by that day. Ground One presents videotaped and transcribed interviews with 30 people who lived and worked in Chinatown, which

are fully searchable by theme, keyword, or interviewee in English and Chinese. Ground One enriches the collection and extends the mission of The September 11 Digital Archive to use electronic media to collect, preserve, and present the history of the 9/11 attacks.
