Black in Appalachia: Greeneville Black History Project Digital Archive

Black in Appalachia: Greeneville Black History Project Digital Archive

We love everything about mountain living in the South. There is something special about the culture of Appalachia, especially the African American culture. If you are member of this community or just looking to learn more about African Americans in Appalachia, there is a new archive that will help you do just that. The Greeneville Black History Project launched a digital archive that is ” a public, searchable archive of digital materials related to African American history in Greeneville and Greene County, Tennessee. The items in the archive are sourced from a mix of local institutions and community members who have generously lent digital copies of their resources. The lenders include the Greeneville Greene County History Museum, Tusculum University, The Greeneville Sun, and several community members. ” Explore the Digital Archive here: https://blackinappalachia.omeka.net/

Here are a few clips from the archive and be sure to like them on Facebook here

About Greeneville Black History Project

The Greeneville Black History Project’s goal is to work with the Black communities of Greene County, Tennessee in an effort to fully document and make accessible the community’s history.
Much of the material collected comes from Tusculum College, the Greene County History Museum, and the Elmer T. Cox Memorial Library. However, the greatest treasures come from the community members themselves.
During a call for materials in February 2018, the project collected family history documents and conducted several oral history interviews. These materials, along with the community resource, The Black Community of Greeneville Pathfinder, will be showcased in the upcoming event Black in Appalachia: A Greeneville History Presentation.
