“From our Past, In the Present, For the Future: Preserving Oral History Along the Tugaloo Corridor”
“From our Past, In the Present, For the Future: Preserving Oral History Along the Tugaloo Corridor” is the culmination of a joint project of the Stephens County Foundation and Toccoa Falls College senior Historiography students of Dr. David Jalovick, Professor of History, in cooperation with the Stephens County Historical Society, and is funded in part by a grant from the Georgia Humanities Council. This event will take place on Saturday, March 2, 2013, at 10:00 am in the Mitchell Allen Room of the Stephens County Historical Society.
One fascinating aspect of this program will include the public sharing of selected stories and the recognition of those interviewed as well as the interviewers. Another will be the presentation of oral history interviewing techniques. Stephens County Foundation members along with Dr. David Jalovick, Professor of History at Toccoa Falls College, students and guests will be on hand to share stories and answer questions related to the Tugaloo River Corridor. The public is invited to attend this wonderful event that sheds light on the history of this area through story.
