Last summer, the DC Oral History Collaborative – made possible through a collaboration with the DC Public Library and the Historical Society of Washington D.C. – partnered with 10 local organizations and individuals to produce exciting new oral history projects around the city. Join us at this FREE event to find out what our community partner oral historians learned about the city through their narrators, and what they learned about oral history through the process.
