Description:

The History Makers organization and the Carnegie Mellon University Informedia Project came together to bring this trove of 310 African American video oral history interviews to the general public. The HistoryMakers group started their oral history interviews in 1999, and over the next six years they interviewed Marian Wright Edelman, Julian Bond, and other prominent individuals in the African American community. Along with support from Carnegie Mellon University, this archival project was made possible through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). On the right-hand side, visitors can view interviews by category (which include "CivicMakers" and "LawMakers") and also look over a complete list of all the interviews. Additionally, the site includes a "Help" section and a FAQ area, which offers a few more details about their work.
