History à la Carte: Amplifying Black Voices of Change: Place-Based Oral History in an Eroding Landscape

Wednesday, Mar. 11, noon–1 p.m.

Panelists: Melody Hunter-Pillion, JoCora Moore, Amanda Finn, Andre Taylor

For years, the tapestry of history on exhibit was remarkably monotone. Today’s public historians, however, now seek to weave vibrancy into the overall tapestry, sharing lessons learned from capturing and translating underrepresented community history: a movement represented by the oral-history projects represented on this panel of students from North Carolina State University.
