Oral History News

The University of Florida reports on a $150,000 grant to preserve African-American history in Alachua County.

It’s always great to hear about more oral histories being taken. Once a generation dies their memories can’t be brought back. We’ve heard first hand some of the amazing, interesting or profound details you get out of an oral history interview that would never have been noted in a book or newspaper of the times. I hope that other institutions find the funds even in these times to keep oral history going so we don’t end up with any blank spots in our history.
