Unlocking the Power of Oral History with Etta King

Talking with older relatives and community members about their lives is a great way for students to build practical skills, develop new relationships, and unlock exciting historical stories. Learn how to lead an oral history project with your students, be introduced to JWA’s myriad oral history resources, and brainstorm with colleagues about how to bring inter-generational story sharing into your classroom or community.
