The LCAAHC is beginning the “African Americans in the Tri-County Area Oral History Project.” Join us for a community oral history training to learn how to conduct oral history interviews. Stipends are available for community members to conduct interviews. This training is sponsored by the Laurel County African American Heritage Center, the UK Nunn Center for Oral History, and the UK Appalachian Center.

African Americans in the Tri-County Area Oral History Project

This project seeks to explore, document, and share African American experiences in southeastern Kentucky, especially Knox, Laurel, and Whitley Counties. Oral history interviews will give insight into the lives and contributions of African Americans in the Tri-County area. A research team of the project co-directors, community researchers, and project consultants will work together through the Laurel County African American Heritage Center to conduct oral histories in order to highlight diverse voices in the community and broaden the narrative about the history of the area.
