Oral History Project:
Black Elders of the Seacoast
Get Your Black Heritage Guide HERE
This project was inspired by a fear of losing another generation's accounts of life in the region as experienced by African-Americans. The intention was not to write definitive autobiographies but simply to capture some of the memories and images of people who had lived in the region since before WWII. What emerged was a collection of stories reflecting their very different personal experiences and points of view. Interviews were completed between September 1990 and December 1991. Some of the photo
sessions were done a little later, one earlier.
Five of the fourteen interviews are represented here.
