Arkansas Chinese Heritage Project, an expendable fund in the UCA Foundation.
The mission of the Arkansas Chinese Heritage Project (ACHP) is to collect, preserve, and showcase the rich history of Chinese communities in Arkansas and surrounding states. This multi-disciplinary oral history project will share the lived experiences of Chinese communities past and present with students, scholars, and community members, while also educating the broader public about the ethnic and cultural diversity of our state. Our work is conducted with the collaboration and input of community members and historical societies in Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
Donations will be used to:
  • Transport students and scholars to interview sites around the state to empower community members to share their stories
  • Record interviews and digitize photographs in the highest-possible quality
  • Design and maintain an online oral history archive
  • Create exhibits to share Chinese history in Arkansas with the broader public
