About the Project
The Milledgeville/Baldwin County Oral History Project is led by Special Collections of Georgia College and funded by a grant by the Knight Fund for Milledgeville of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.
The goal of the project is to document the contemporary history of the area with a focus on veterans, women, and African American histories. The project will begin with a fall kick-off reception with guest speakers and an opportunity for interviews.
Digital Bridges, a community focused project of Georgia College with funding from the Knight Foundation will partner for the project by acting as an interview location and collection point.
