The interviews here stem from Patrick W. O’Neil‘s US Women’s History Class at Methodist University. The students began interviewing women in and around Fayetteville, NC, in 2015, asking them about their personal histories, their relationships to feminism, and other aspects of their lives.
Hi there! Welcome to the Methodist University Community Oral History Project, a production of the Methodist University History Department funded by a grant from Title III. Our goal is simple and wide-ranging: to collect and preserve stories of people in and around Fayetteville, North Carolina, and think about those stories in context. Most of our oral histories will be collected by students at Methodist University, and the project’s coordinator is Patrick W. O’Neil. Feel free to contact us if you have questions, and happy listening!
