The Jackson Center’s online oral history archive has gone live! Click here to view the first two oral history series. The Jackson Center’s Oral History Trust contains over 150 oral histories and hundreds of additional recordings. This website includes the first two dozen that have been fully processed, along with glimpses of our exhibition series. Mrs. Jackson’s motto is “without the past, you have no future.” Oral history is at the center of the Jackson Center’s organizing model. Oral history teaches us values, visions, struggles, and victories of every day history-makers, and it has continued to ground our work in listening and to inspire all of us to build a more just community together.
