Notes:
Exiles in America was a collecting initiative that looks at the journeys and experiences of Cubans who came to the United States as unaccompanied children via Operation Pedro Pan in the early 1960s, and of those who fled the island as balseros, i.e., rafters, beginning in the mid 1990s. Building on relationships already established with former Pedro Pan children, universities, archives, and museums in Miami, the project conducted research, recorded oral histories, and acquired collections to document the legacy of Cuban migration to the United States. This project was funded by the Consortium for the American Experience in 2014 and was part of the Smithsonian-wide Immigration Initiative and the National Museum of American History exhibit proejct, Many Voices, One Nation.
Summary:
A series of twelve oral history interviews conducted as part of the research for the exhibit "Many Voices, One Nation", designed to research and document the journeys and experiences of two distinct immigration/migration experiences of the Cuban disapora.
