On June 18 at 5:30 pm, doctoral students from the University of Florida Samuel Proctor Oral History Program (SPOHP) will present a public panel entitled, "Unfinished Business: Race, Democracy, and the Ongoing Struggle for Civil Rights" at the Natchez Museum of African American History and Culture. The members of this panel will demonstrate how their individual scholarship recognizes the "unfinished business" of democracy in academia, communities and the nation at large. Please help us get the work out by sharing this flier!
SPOHP initiated a partnership with NAPAC in 2014 to preserve the memories of Natchez civil rights veterans and important local figures by recording their oral histories. SPOHP will return the collection of transcripts to the museum in June and initiate new interviews on the afternoon of June 19. Please get in touch if you know of any strong candidates for an interview. We hope to see you at the panel!
