Public Histories

  • The Jackson Scholars Program was the first step toward creating a vibrant and welcoming space for young people at the Jackson Center. Drawing inspiration from the deep tradition of youth activism in the Northside and Pine Knolls communities, the Jackson Scholars Program introduces high school students to the multi-faceted work of public history and creative community development.
  • The Southern Oral History Program is one of our primary partners and houses a collection of over 4,000 oral histories. The program will host many of the Jackson Center’s life history interviews and make them available online soon. The SOHP is also home to several dozen oral history interviews related to the Northside community.
