Reflections on American Democracy, a live webcast with Smithsonian Curator Barbara Clark Smith from June 10, 2020.

This Is My Home Now documents the lives of four Montagnard youths whose families have come to America from Asia. They live in two worlds—that of their parents and grandparents, who lived in the highlands of Vietnam but fled from government persecution for their Christian religion and desire for autonomy—and one of constant learning and adaptation to be Americans in North Carolina. Produced by Greensboro History Museum. Director/Editor: Mariah Dunn Kramer
