OHA Statement on Charlottesville

OHA Oral History Association

In the wake of the violence this weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, the leadership of the Oral History Association (OHA) joins its members in broad condemnation of the acts of hatred that took place there.  Since our founding over 50 years ago, OHA members have frequently been called upon to document the stories of those who have faced racism and intolerance.  These powerful narratives remind us how important it is to speak out against instances of oppression, and we continue to reaffirm our organization’s commitment to the core values of inclusivity, respect, diversity and the rejection of the rhetoric of hate, division, exclusion, and discrimination.
