In Our Own Words: Stories that Honor the Heritage, History, and Humanity of the AAPI Community

In Our Own Words seeks to harness the power of storytelling to celebrate and bring awareness to the history, experiences, and diversity within the AAPI community.Stories from AAPI community members at Harvard will be collected, archived, and compiled into a virtual platform that will also feature Harvard’s records and materials about AAPI history and culture. This project will culminate in a live storytelling event to heal and rebuild the community in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
