Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations
Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations, an oral history project and public programming series, examines the history and experiences of mixed-heritage people and families, cultural hybridity, race, ethnicity, and identity in the historically diverse borough of Brooklyn.
Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations is a project of the Brooklyn Historical Society which builds upon BHS's oral history collections. Begun in 1973, the oral history collections contain interviews with more than 800 narrators and are available for listening in the Othmer Library.
Through sharing stories, we open up intergenerational conversations about preserving cultural heritage in a multicultural democracy.
