There is a fantastic exhibit at the Vermont Folk Life Museum right now titled In their own words.
In Their Own Words is a collection of personal histories from refugees who are living in Vermont. These narratives offer a glimpse into the remarkable diversity of life experiences that refugees bring to our community. While most Vermonters will never know how it feels to be a refugee, there is value in trying to consider perspectives that differ greatly from our own. These individuals have offered to share their lives as a way to deepen public understanding of a group of Vermonters that is growing everyday.
The two young men pictured below are former students of the college I currently work for. I hope you'll consider checking out the show.
