The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Tacoma community history projects

Repository: University of Washington, Tacoma. Library

Collection Description (CRHP): This collection includes civil rights oral histories of African Americans, Japanese Americans, Latinos and Native Americans. Each project always includes an introductory paper, transcripts of interviews, and additional materials. Occasionally, the additional materials include notable items, such as rare newspapers, ephemera, and photographs. Each project also has recordings of the interviews in audio or video format. The recordings are in a variety of formats, including audiotape, VHS tape, mini tape, and DVD.

Collection Description (Extant): Since 1991, students enrolled in Professor Mike Honey's 'Doing Community History' class have been collecting oral histories of local residents and gathering historical research in Community History Projects.

Interviews are transcribed and edited for user accessibility, but the original audio interview is often included. Projects can be checked out at the UW Tacoma Library.
