Oral History Project

As a way of showcasing Black women and women of color who have fought for equity in voting rights or served in political office, faculty and students will create an archive of oral history interviews with politically active women of color from across the state and region. Professor of History Dan Fountain will direct the Voices of Change Oral History Project, to be part of North Carolina Women’s Oral History Collection located in the Meredith College Archives, and to be housed in the archives of our partner institutions.
