Back for a third installment, new oral histories are available in Randall Library’s Somos NC: Voices from North Carolina’s Latino Community digital collection.
This collaborative project allows students in Dr. Amanda Boomershine’s SPN 490 Hispanics in NC: Service Learning and Research course to conduct oral history interviews with members of the local Latino community. Randall Library hosts these oral histories in an online digital collection that is available to all researchers. This project originated through the grant funded initiative, “Latino Americans: 500 Years of History,” awarded to UNCW in 2015, and sponsored by the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. It has continued after the original award year to include two additional installments of oral histories.
