ROOTS Voices Project
ROOTS Voices is an audio/visual project that records the stories and history of African Americans who are life-long residents or re-located individuals driven by pushes and pulls of the Great Migration to the Northwest. The project was developed in 2013 as a collaboration between the Black Heritage Society and the NW ROOTS Committee.
The stories are collected once a year, on one afternoon at the annual ROOTS Family Picnic by teen video-graphers who are the listeners that record the memories of storytellers. The Black Heritage Society is the recipient of the digital stories that are archived for public access as a resource linked to their collections.
There will be an upcoming storytelling event at the Roots Family Picnic!
