A Wise Way interview BTS


Oral history interviews as primary source materials offer the ability to make real and meaningful connections between people, places, and things.  They inspire empathy and convey the power of story.  The Massillon Museum has been recording oral histories since the 1970s, and more than thirty people have been interviewed about the Black history of Massillon.
