Oral Histories

Oral histories are powerful. They allow events, traditions, stories, and memories to be carried forth from generation to generation. With recording technology today, a person’s firsthand history may be preserved for even longer. We are bringing together Lamoille County residents that identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to share their narratives.

 

The first phase of storytelling will be through audio oral histories. The second phase will build upon the first by expressing those oral histories through various artistic forms such as painting, poetry, photography, music, theater, and dance. We will be inviting Artists of the Global Majority to help create these pieces with the storytellers. Our mission and focus is to deepen racial awareness and understanding in our communities.
