Telling the People’s Story Conference, MS, Sept 2004

Telling the People’s Story Conference announcement  
Mississippi Cultural Crossroads will co-sponsor a state-wide conference, “Telling the People’s Story: From Tape and Transcript to Public Programs,” in Port Gibson on Friday, Sept. 17 through Sunday, Sept. 19, 2004. Link to website for the event 

The conference will feature sessions on using oral history to create community theater, exhibits for touring and permanent installation, informational and educational websites, radio and
television documentaries, and publications from newspaper and magazine articles to full length books and CDs.

The conference is directed to persons and groups who have collected or are thinking of collecting oral histories and want to explore how the stories of the people interviewed can be incorporated in public programs that will educate, delight, and celebrate the communities that generate them. We hope to stimulate the public use of oral history stories at the grass roots community level, and to encourage teachers of language arts and social studies to incorporate oral history material in their classrooms. Continuing education units can be arranged.
