Description: Humanities Tennessee is conducting a community-based oral history project addressing the state's growing Latino population.

These experiences will be interpreted within the historical, social and economic patterns from which they arise locally and in the nations of origin. The project will produce a bilingual tabloid that contains excerpts from the oral history interviews, as well as interpretive content that explores the meaning and significance of the stories in a broader context.
