Did you know that the Digital Collections and Archives holds the oral history recordings and transcripts of the West Medford African-American Remembrance Project? These oral histories were created conducted under the supervision of Tufts Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Associate Professor, Rosalind Shaw in 2005 and 2006. Topics include growing up in West Medford, school desegregation, employment opportunities, as well as a general sense of what it was like to grow up in this area as an African-American during the mid-twentieth century. Check out the Tufts Digital Library for audio and transcripts from this project.
Please note that our Reading Room and offices will be closed Monday-Friday, December 23-27, 2019.
