VOCES Oral History Project Workshop
May 05th, 2019 10:30am
VOCES Oral History Project is the leading Latino oral history archive in the United States. It began in 1999, with a mission of capturing untold stories of Latinos and Latinas who served, in the military or on the homefront, during World War II. On May 5th you will have the opportunity to use an interactive listening station to hear parts of VOCES vast collection of oral histories from World War II veterans, many of whom are Texans! A 2-hour oral history workshop will also be offered to teach you how to use different equipment, including a cell phone, to interview your own family and friends. We hope you will gain a new perspective into your family history as well as our collective historical narrative.
The VOCES project was founded by Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez in 1999. She is a former professional journalist and is a professor at the University Of Texas Austin Moody College of Communication’s School of Journalism. She and her staff and volunteers are dedicated to recording and disseminating the stories of US Latinas and Latinos and weaving the many perspectives into our historical narrative at the national, state and local levels.
