UGA Black Alumni Oral History Project (VIRTUAL)

Black students who attended the University of Georgia during the 1960s and 1970s paved the way for the more diverse culture that exists on campus today, but their stories are not well known. To help fill that gap in the historical record, the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library created the Black Alumni Oral History Project in 2019. Started with funding from a Giving Voice to the Voiceless grant, established by Charlayne Hunter-Gault and her husband, Ron Gault, the project seeks to collect stories from Black alumni, documenting their experiences at UGA and expanding an understanding of the Black experience on campus over the decades.
