& Alexandria’s Immigrant Oral History Project

Krystyn Moon, Director of American Studies at the University of Mary Washington, examines the topic of Chinese Americans on the Vaudeville stage and the ways in which they broke stereotypes through their singing ability, comedic patter, use of dialect, and dancing. We will also hear about the oral history project underway at the City of Alexandria about immigrants since the 1970s .
