This exhibit explores the experiences of eight men who fled Somali following the Somali Civil War and who now live in the Salt Lake area. This exhibit is based on interviews conducted with them by Haden Griggs in the latter half of 2019. During most of these interviews, Haden was accompanied and aided by Omar, a member of the Somali community in Utah. Read more about the contributors' experiences below.

Complete transcripts and audio for each interview are housed at USU digital commons. If you are interested in reading or hearing them in their entirety, click here.
