In May, WHRO Public Media, in partnership with the Vietnamese Boat People podcast, held a virtual story slam. Artists, activists and Vietmamese-Americans celebrated, through story and song, the uniqueness of their culture and the epic journeys many took to arrive on U.S. soil.
Participants were asked to share their Vietnamese-American experience, ranging in topics like growing up in a Vietnamese household to how certain dishes were an important part of their youth, or how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their experience as a Vietnamese-American.
Watch these funny, sad and compelling stories and performances.
