A.P. Marshall African American Oral History Archive

In the 1980's, Ypsilanti historian A.P. Marshall sought to preserve stories of Ypsilanti residents who lived through the Jim Crow era, fought racism during WWII, and led the local Civil Rights movement. The Ypsilanti District Library partnered with the African American Cultural and Historical Museum of Washtenaw County (AACHM) to digitize these interviews and publish them online.
