The Filipino American Oral History Project

The oral history project examines the important impact of Filipino Americans in the Greater Newark and New York City area and their experiences as being a part of the diaspora in the region.

This oral history initiative was developed in collaboration with the Newark Museum of Art and the Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience at Rutgers University-Newark and was catalyzed by the important survey exhibition of the artist Carlos Villa at the museum.
