2015 Summer Internship: Princeville Digital Oral Histories of Seniors
This summer I had the pleasure of working with Mayor Bobbie Jones; Town Clerk, Calvin Atkins; Princeville Museum Coordinator, Tabatha Powell; and eight SouthWest Edgecombe High School student volunteers to create digital oral histories of some of Princeville's senior citizens. In these videos, we were able to capture the pride, resilience, hardships, accomplishments and memories of these Princeville seniors whose stories will not be written in the history books, but whose experiences add to the richness of the past that will soon be lost. My students enjoyed the stories and editing process so much, that they will continue to interview additional seniors throughout the year and next summer.
