The Williams Center for Oral History is launching a podcast series, “What Endures” on Thursday, October 1. The first episode, “Politics and a Pulitzer,” highlights the mission of the Williams Center and focuses on our namesake, Dr. T. Harry Williams.
Subsequent podcasts will be posted regularly. Upcoming episodes include “Sin and Smoke: Stories of Our State” and “We Watched it All Wash Away: Oral Histories of Flood and Storm Survivors.” Additional podcasts will feature Louisiana’s struggle with civil rights, university history, women’s history in education, and Louisiana’s World War II veterans. The director will also interview professionals in the field of oral history along with some of the Center’s partners about their projects.
Stay tuned and stay in touch!
