The East Side Freedom Library invites you to an original presentation:

Nostalgia, Memory, and Hmong American Culture​

Thursday, August 9, 2018, 7pm​

How do two distinct cultures, Hmong and American, meld together to form one? To what extent do Hmong Americans sense the weight of this identity​?​

As a Hmong American, Jim Vue explores the ramifications of such a union and opens up possibilities for new explorations into nostalgia, memory and the Hmong American culture.

​Jim Vue grew up in Texas, served in the U.S. Army, and then moved to St. Paul, Minnesota.  He has been working towards a Masters degree at Metropolitan State University. His presentation is based on his research project.
