Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Black Women Oral History Project consists of transcripts of oral history interviews of fifty-nine African American women who had made significant contibutions through professional or voluntary work and were born within approximately 15 years before and after the turn of the 20th century. The interviews were conducted from 1976 to 1985 for the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women (Radcliffe College, Cambridge, Mass.)

The published guide to the transcripts (edited by Ruth Edmonds Hill and Patricia Miller King), available in the Sophia Smith Collection, gives a summary of each woman's life and highlights topics covered in the interviews; it also contains an index.
