The A.P. Marshall African American Oral History Archive

seeks to preserve stories from the Ypsilanti African American community. Members of this well-organized community lived through the Jim Crow era, fought racism during WWII, and led the local Civil Rights movement. Spanning several generations, these interviews illuminate eras of profound social change and offer an intimate look into the social, home, and political life of a historic Michigan community.
