Welcome to Life Down South

“Life Down South” seeks to aggregate oral history interviews, tips on conducting oral histories, and discussions of oral histories within the context of the 20th century American South. We assemble and proliferate oral histories on civil rights, race relations, economics, gender, religion, immigration, veteran’s experiences, food, and culture. This site also publishes content on oral history techniques, workshops and best practices.
