Cultural Crossroads: Migration and Community Transformation is a COPLAC digital history project which set out to investigate and identify specific migration within local communities in an effort to rescue the stories all too often forgotten local history. This website was created as a part of Cultural Crossroads, a COPLACDigital course generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
