Stories Of Im/migration: Chicago

"Stories of Im/migration: Chicago will bring to the forefront the collections of diverse communities around Chicago and connect it to current-day discussions of immigration and migration in the U.S. and make accessible 1,000 new digital collections from six Chicago Cultural Alliance members on the Chicago Collection's Consortium's EXPLORE Chicago Collections portal, a free, centralized, web-based search engine," the Cultural Alliance announced this week.

"A dialogue toolkit will accompany the collections, and will be made available for area libraries and educational institutions to talk about immigration and migration past and present.


"Participating institutions include the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, Chinese American Museum of Chicago, Filipino American Historical Society of Chicago, National Hellenic Museum, The Polish Museum of America, and the Puerto Rican Arts Alliance.

"With users of EXPLORE in all 50 states and over 180 countries, this partnership will allow others to see Chicago's unique history through these rich first-voice immigration and migration collections."
