Los Angeles Councilman’s Life Archived in Immigrant Video Project
By EGP News Report
The Immigrant Archive Project, an independent national initiative that aims to preserve the life stories of America’s immigrant population, recently added Los Angeles Councilmember Ed P. Reyes to their collection.
Reyes joined local leaders last week to kick off the local launch of the Immigrant Archive Project, and was videotaped sharing some of the childhood experiences he said he will never forget.
The project — an independent initiative of the Latino Broadcasting Company, a minority-owned nationally syndicated radio network based in Miami — so far features more than 300 stories from some of the country’s most successful immigrants.
Academy Award-nominated actor Edward James Olmos and Emmy Award-winning journalist Maria Antonieta Collins were also at the kick off event.
