AN ORAL HISTORY OFSOUTH CAROLINA NEWSPAPERS Remembering Eyewitnesses to History CO-SPONSORED BY: School of Journalism and Mass Communications
THE GOAL OF THE PROJECT Our project’s goal is to capture video and audio interviews of some of South Carolina’s leading newspaper journalists from the last half century. We wish to ensure that the heritage of the state’s journalists and newspapers is preserved.
The Oral History is located on a website containing video and audio recordings, photos, links and biographic information. In addition torecalling stories from the past, such as the Orangeburg Massacre, we are also interviewing selected journalists who covered significant events to give their oral recollections and background information. AP Reporter, Jim Davenport’s interview page on the website.
Time is of the essence with this long-term, ongoing project. We must get interviews before key witnesses are gone. This is important for future generations of South Carolinians so we do notforget, and can broaden our perspective by looking at the past.
