Grant Enriches The September 11 Digital Archive

Published March 24, 2011

ASHP — 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 — is pleased to announce the receipt of 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 materials gathered will extend the mission of The September 11 Digital Archive and enrich its already broad collection.
