University of Alabama Summerhill Center for the Study of the South presents new oral history project

The mission of the Summersell Center is “to investigate and promote understanding of the history and culture of the American South through research and public programming.”

The center has paired up with the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill to bring awareness to preserving oral history. UNC’s program dedicates itself to recording interviews of people’s accounts of Southern historical events and immortalizing them on the Internet.
