In Their Own Words

In Spring 2022, OCS Project Director was awarded a yearlong Oral History Association - National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship to support her as she continues working on OCS Project oral history, archival, and digital media work to recover the history and explore the legacy of the Black Panthers' Oakland Community School through the eyes of the primary stakeholders: students, staff, parents and community supporters.
