Echoes of Freedom: South Asian Pioneers in California, 1899-1965
Based on the exhibit held in the Bernice Layne Brown Gallery, Doe Library, University of California, Berkeley, July 16 to September 30, 2001, Echoes of Freedom tells the story of early Indian immigrants to California through photographs, documents, and publications drawn from the South/Southeast Asia Library's South Asians in North America Collection. Once called the Archives of the South Asian Diaspora collection and renamed in 2005, this collection was obtained in the late 1960s as a selection of publications printed and distributed by the Gadar Party, a nationalist organization founded in 1913 by South Asian immigrants on the Pacific West coast of the United States and Canada.
Silicon Raj: Making a Difference to America's Future
Silicon Raj is a photo documentary project in progress. Its goals are, first, to honor Indians' contributions to America in job creation, entrepreneurial leadership, and prosperity in an array of fields and industries, and second, to call for the acknowledgement of their contributions and, at once, embracing their presence and the promise of continued integration. Ultimately, Silicon Raj is the photographer's "effort to provide the Indian community with a visual voice, so others will respect their ambitions, culture, music, and other social values, and to document the day to day life of a proud community."
