Gerri Augusto
Critical Oral History

In this Grassroots Leadership & the Arts for Social Change Corner, Danita Mason-Hogans, Wesley Hogan, and Geri Augusto discuss the use of Critical Oral History as a methodology for uncovering the story of The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee's organizing from the bottom up and from the inside out and for exploring how affected people organized to change history during the Civil Rights Movement. The article also discusses the creation of the SNCC Digital Gateway, in collaboration with Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies, and how the materials are being used to influence and inform social movements today.
