The Oral History Project
The Oral History Project was established in honor of Dwight L. Greene ’70 who was a dedicated diversity advocate and community builder, educator, attorney, mentor, colleague and friend.
The aim of the Oral History Project is to establish a collection of oral histories of Wesleyan graduating seniors and alumni of color. The project is coordinated by one of the two Dwight Greene Interns, who is currently Noor Tell ’14. The intern is responsible for coordinating the interviews that range in topics from their experiences that deal with issues of social justice, civic engagement, or academic experience. The interviews are recorded and collected to be stored in the Olin Library Archives to contribute to the body of primary resources documenting the experiences of people of color at Wesleyan University.
