About the Project
The Africans in Chicago Oral History Project is a new project of the United African Organization (UAO). The UAO is a dynamic coalition of African national associations that promotes social and economic justice, civic participation, and empowerment of African immigrants and refugees in Illinois.
This new project will collect the stories of African immigrants and refugees about their journey to Chicago. We’d love to know your personal story and hear about your new life. Read more about the project and then go to Participate if you would like to get involved.
