ANTHROPOLOGY (ORAL HISTORY)
The production team conducted oral history interviews with 14 residents, former residents and community leaders in 2011 and 2012. These oral history interviews have been compiled into an unedited Oral History DVD, “Davis Bottom: Living Memories” (3 hrs., 39 minutes), which has been provided to participants and local institutions and libraries for research and educational use.
Representatives from six Davis Bottom families contributed 101 photographs ranging in dates from the 1910s to 2000s. Residents received digital copies of the photographs on CDs. The production team compiled the collection into a community photo archive, including logs with known names and dates.
