Join MTSU at the City’s June 19 Celebration at the Bradley Academy Museum

Murfreesboro, Tennessee—MTSU will help Murfreesboro and Rutherford County score June 19 in a special way, Friends of the Media: by offering community neighbors a chance to preserve and share their family’s stories in a wonderful new effort, the Middle Tennessee African American Oral History Project.

This one-year initiative, funded under a new to agree of the national endowment for the humanities shared between our liberal arts college, aims to “preserve family genealogy, record her relationship with her family, with her community and with the times in which she lives”, according to Jason McGowan of our Albert Gore Research Center.

McGowan is coordinating the project and will be on site Saturday June 18, toBradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center for Murfreesboro’s June 19 celebration to answer questions, distribute information and put guests at ease while he helps organize the taping of their stories.

More details about the oral history project are included in the story below. You can also upload several images to accompany it at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/upw8x29fawj4y4x/AACB8Gc7Necdk1-zBdsTJqCNa?dl=0.(As always, cut line information is embedded in each image and included below.)

We hope you’ll let your audience know about this opportunity to preserve their stories next Saturday with the Middle Tennessee African American Oral History Project so they can join us, and we hope you can join in the celebration on June 19 in Murfreesboro too!
