Rainbow History Project Oral History Collection

Title

Rainbow History Project Oral History Collection

Description

Eye-witness accounts of what we’ve seen and experienced provide a valuable resource to researchers and future generations to understand our past and how we arrived where we are today.

Each interview in this collection has a narrator telling the story and a documenter guiding the process.

Collected since the founding of the RHP, this collection is growing and is open to researchers.

All interviews have been digitized and are described in the catalog; only some of them have transcripts available.

None of the interviews stream online. To obtain access to an interview, you must request by contacting us directly, providing a brief description of your project and your research interests. Our email address is: info AT rainbowhistory DOT org

One of our team will share the file from our Google Drive, and you can listen from home. Please be sure to have "Music Player for Google Drive" enabled on your machine to play the recording. www.driveplayer.com
