Collection Historical Note

Washington University’s African and African American Studies Program has launched an African oral history project.  This collaboration between WU faculty, graduate students and undergraduates and the people who lived through important historical eras will create a unique historical record that will offer new perspectives on African history while helping individual informants to better preserve their own life stories for themselves and their descendants.  In addition to this “service to the community” (both in St. Louis and in Africa), the project will give WU students training and firsthand experience in oral history methodologies, and the resulting data will serve as the basis for original scholarship including senior thesis, dissertations, and collaborative faculty publications.
