DC Oral History Collaborative

 

 

The DC Oral History Collaborative is an ambitious city-wide initiative to document and preserve the history of Washington’s residents and communities through the collection of oral histories. The project will survey and publicize existing oral history collections, provide grants and training for scholars and amateur historians to launch new oral history projects, and establish an interactive, accessible platform where the city’s memories can benefit residents and scholars for generations to come.

 

We are currently seeking collaborators to join us in this exciting endeavor. If you have a story to tell, please join us and our partners at any of the following community meetings:
