Groundswell: Oral History for Movement Building

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Oral history can be a powerful practice and tool in our movements for justice. We will offer a basic intro to the practice of oral history, and offer an anti-oppression framework for oral history work. Through role-playing exercises we will explore opportunities and challenges that may be encountered during an oral history interview. Participants will find tools, resources, and a network for continuing to build their interviewing skills and incorporating oral history into their work for social justice.
