As a part of this project, our community has begun collecting oral histories in both audio and video format. Below are some of what we’ve collected so far. These include both full interviews (in their entirety) and shorter excerpts addressing common topics.

If you would like to be interviewed for this project or have a suggestion for someone we should interview (or an event we should record), let us know.
