June 19 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Event Details:

The DC Oral History Collaborative will be at this year’s Anacostia Community Museum Juneteenth Festival to help festival goers learn about oral history and record informal interviews with their friends and family! The oral history booth will feature recording equipment, comfortable conversation space, and guides to help interviewers get started. Interviewers and interviewees will be able to take home their recordings on a flash drive and will learn options for archiving their interviews or conducting longer-form oral histories. There will be no obligation to submit the interviews to any institutional repository, and the booth will center the impact of interviewing and being interviewed.
If you don’t ask, you’ll never know! 
The DC Oral History Collaborative is a partnership program of HumanitiesDC and the DC Public Library.
