K.001.008. Southern Communities: Our Stories in Focus: Chapel Hill/Carrboro
- Creator: Southern Oral History Program
- Collection: Southern Oral History Program Interviews
Interviews were conducted in March 2009 for "Our Stories, In Focus," a project sponsored by the Chapel Hill Public Arts Commission and UNC Chapel Hill's Program in the Humanities and Human Values. Project participants with diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds attended workshops where they shared their stories. Topics discussed include family life and upbringing, what brought them to North Carolina, and their relationships to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The interviews were conducted informally with interviewer and interviewee occasionally changing roles. Many interviewees were students, who share their experiences entering the university and their aspirations for the future. Several interviewees born outside the United States discuss their journeys to North Carolina and offer outside perspectives and observations on the Chapel Hill area.
