HOUSTON: Adrienne Cain, a Baylor University expert in oral history, recently held a training session at Houston Community College’s Central campus.

Some of the trained HCC students will be mentored by Foundation for India Studies (FIS) with practical training in production of its oral history interviews.

FIS has standing MOUs, with Baylor University in Waco, Houston Community College System (HCCS) and Houston Public Library (HPL), who all have pledged to support the Indo-American Oral History project which is a community driven not-for profit project. The training project represents a shining example of cooperation between Baylor University, HCCS, SAADA and FIS.

At the national level, South Asian American Digital Archives (SAADA) will provide national exposure by posting all the FIS interviews on their website: www.saada.org.

Fifty two first-generation immigrants from India have already participated in the project and have recorded their experiences as immigrants in America.

To find out more about the oral history project and schedule an appointment for an oral history interview, please call Krishna Vavilala 713-795-5169 or Ravi Brahmbhatt 832-413-3416.
