Event description

Description

The Civil Rights and Restorative Justice project is hosting an oral history event, entitled “Resurrecting Their Stories,” to amplify and deepen the materials it is collecting on the history of homicidal racial violence in Alabama, and to spur reparative and restorative work in local communities. The oral history approach is designed to elevate family and local histories by making them more available and, in the process, to challenge the supremacy of traditional elite sources by expanding the pool of historical artifacts by making them easily accessible to students, scholars and everyday people seeking to learn more about our collective past. The harvesting of local artifacts should produce important new historical materials that are currently in private hands or are need of preservation. We will collect material on cases from the counties of the Northern Federal Judicial District, which includes the Eastern Division: Calhoun, Clay, Cleburne, Talladega, and Jasper, the Western Division: Fayette, Lamar, Marion, Walker, Winston, the Middle Division: Cherokee, DeKalb, Etowah, Marshall, St. Clair, the Northeastern Division: Cullman, Jackson, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Morgan, Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale, the Southern Division: Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, and the Western Division: Bibb, Greene, Pickens, and Sumter.
