Mercer County African American Heritage Oral History Project

Get It Here

This project builds on an earlier KOHC project grant award which documented 10 African-American oral history interviews for Mercer County (2012OH10). This project broadens the scope of the earlier project by including interviews which focus on more individuals in Mercer County and personal narratives related to a broad range of topics which have affected African-Americans in the community over the last century. This project is ongoing in 2014 and will probably continue to be added to until 2016.
