Telling the Forgotten Stories

(January 9, 2020)

Oral history is the most ancient form of recording our past and now, with the culmination of what will be a four-year project in southeastern Vermont and southwestern New Hampshire, it will be as enduring as the written word. 

A group of Brattleboro middle- and high-school students will discuss some of the research they have done in the past year as part of the Brattleboro Words Project’s Roundtable Discussion Series next Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 118 Elliot in downtown Brattleboro.
