The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) has taken on a number of interesting and thoughtful projects in the past few years, and this website offers up material on one of their most compelling works as of late. The intent of the project is "to collect, publish, and archive 'first voices' narratives about people of African descent." As the project site notes, the endeavor is inspired by the historic WPA Federal Writers' Project. First-time visitors to the site can look through sections titled "Origins", "Movement", "Adaptation", and "Transformation" to listen and watch some of the stories they've collected thus far. Most recently, the project has been collecting stories of young people, so visitors should take a look at works that document the feelings and ideas that they have about their own family history and migration.
