Asian American History Project
The Asian American History Project will involve Fairfax County residents in the researching, recording, preservation, writing and promotion of history regarding the experiences of Asian American groups that have chosen Fairfax County as their home. The stories will provide information of how, why and when different Asian immigrant groups came to the U.S. and to Fairfax County, where they have settled and what their experiences and contributions have been to the Fairfax County community.
Products of the project may include articles, a book, a video and a web presence.
The target date for publication of a book is May of 2010 to coincide with Asian American Heritage Month in Fairfax County.
