Tal Stanley – “Listening Well,” A Lesson in Collecting Stories and Oral History.

April 21 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Join us for the start of our 2024 Speaker Series and opening program. Dr. Tal Stanley, Professor of Civic Innovation at Emory & Henry College, will talk to us about the importance of collecting stories. Tal coordinates the “Watershed Project,” a project that has the mission to restore to civic memory the stories of people who otherwise could be lost and to tell honest stories about Southwest Virginia. This work to tell a deeper story requires an honesty about slavery in Southwest Virginia and at Emory & Henry College.
