The SWATL Oral History Project

The SWATL Oral History Project is a multi-modal project that aims to document the recent and historical narratives of Atlanta’s Southwest neighborhoods, while providing learning opportunities for neighborhood youths in interviewing, researching, recording and audio editing, and photography. Comprised of audio recording oral histories, a website that visualizes significant locations in Southwest Atlanta, photographs, video, and archival materials, the goal of the project is to produce a multi-layered collaborative living document with multiple points of access that illuminates the rich history of the Southwest side of Atlanta.
