VACAVILLE — The Vacaville Public Library-Cultural Center is participating in an oral history project to collect the stories of biracial/bicultural military families in the community, past and present.
The project, called Lumpia and Fried Chicken, is designed to capture the memories and experiences of making the shift from Asian countries to the American way of life in Solano County. Those interested in sharing their family story are invited to an introductory program at the library, 1020 Ulatis Drive, at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Organizers note the Fairfield-Vallejo metropolitan area was identified by a 2012 Brown University study as the single most-diverse area in the United States. One significant factor for this is the presence of Mare Island Naval Shipyard and Travis Air Force Base, organizers said.
