Oral History Project

Everybody experiences history differently. Oral interviews, whether video or audio, help preserve the memories of individuals in their own words. 

Recording the different memories and perspectives of different individuals keeps us from telling history “only the one correct way,” and helps us to remember that there are many sides to any story.

We have organized this page by “project.” Each project represents a different theme and had questions tailored to that theme.
