Update on the Oral History Project

Heart of the Race

The Oral History Project of the Black Womens Movement is of to an excellent start. We had a tremendous response in our call out for volunteers and still receive calls long after the closing date for further information and other opportunities.

We have now recruited for interviewers and transcribers who have all received training at our offices in Kennington. Plus we ran an induction evening event for all who expressed an interest in finding out some more about the project. There was a tremendous buzz in the room with new friends of the BCA developing.

Currently we are matching interviewers to our interviewees, and suspect by the end of the month for the project to fully develop. As interviews are completed and the real work of transcribing begins. This is a very fascinating project which has really captured the black community across the UK.
