It’s been 50 years since the Immigration History Research Center and Archives was founded at the University of Minnesota, making it the oldest and largest entity devoted to preserving and understanding immigration experiences.
In celebration, the IHRCA has an exhibit on display through January 22, 2016 at the U’s Elmer L. Andersen Library. The exhibit explores ideas of immigration and race and ethnicity, while sharing its own story of creating and developing an archive to support a wide variety of research.
Exhibit co-curator Ellen Engseth and exhibit designer Darren Terpstra provide a sneak peek of the exhibit in the video above.
