Between Two Worlds: The Vietnamese-American Experience  is a two part award-winning documentary which features the remarkable stories of Vietnamese Americans and their families in the Dayton community. Even though this documentary tells the stories of Vietnamese Americans in Dayton, Ohio, their stories exemplify untold stories of other Vietnamese Americans in small or big cities around the nation. This documentary is a partnership between ThinkTV-Greater Dayton Public Television and Wright State University's Office of Latinx, Asian, and Native American Affairs.

Part 1: The Emmy-nominated Between Two Worlds: Dayton’s Vietnamese-American Community tells the remarkable stories of Vietnamese Americans who made the painful decision to leave their homes in Vietnam, survive the rigors and dangers of the journey and overcome the challenges of making a new life in a strange land. 

Part 2: The Emmy award-winning Between Two Worlds: The Next Generation examines the lives of seven second-generation Vietnamese Americans as they were buffeted by two cultures and struggled to fit in to U.S. culture at a time when America wanted to forget about the Vietnam War and its aftermath.

Each year, we celebrate diversity by celebrating Asian American Asian Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month with programs that celebrate the rich AAPI culture, traditions and history.  The Office of Latinx, Asian and Native American Affairs (LANA) is celebrating this month virtualy due to COVID-19 safety precautions. Join us on Webex https://wright.webex.com/meet/mia.honaker or participate by phone by dialing 1-415-655-0003 then enter access code: 478 945 093.
