Protecting Oral Histories
It has become more crucial than ever before to conduct interviews with the remaining vanguards of the civil rights movement, the offspring of business owners, religious leaders, educators, landowners, and community leaders, and with the sons, daughters, mothers, brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, and cousins of these unsung legends.
The National Association for the Preservation of African-American History & Culture's oral history component is designed to save the stories of historical figures in communities throughout America, to spotlight these stories annually on our website, and to display and interpret this history for youth, and adults alike.
The NAPAAHC is continually seeking your photographs and oral histories. If you have an interesting story about yesteryear, would like to be interviewed, or know someone who may have a compelling story to tell, please contact the NAPAAHC by using the form on our contact page.
