“Remember When…” A Series of Oral Histories on Film

In 1999, The Uzuri Project created, developed and implemented Remember When... a series of oral histories on film. The initial film was shown during the 2000 Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.

In many cases, while finishing Track II of The Uzuri Project Youth Leadership Institute, middle school and high school students do the interviewing. This endeavor has chronicled over 100 senior adults in 77 oral histories on film.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the Department of Arkansas Heritage
