The purpose of this project was to document the narratives and history of recent immigrant groups who have settled in Bowling Green, KY. Immigrants from Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, and Latino communities are interviewed. Interviewees are asked about their cultural identity and traditions, local businesses and restaurants established by immigrants, community networks and support systems, and adapting to life in Bowling Green.
