Content Description

This collection consists of twenty-two oral history interviews conducted in 2018 as part of a project titled Housing Our Story: Towards Archival Justice for Black Baltimore, a grant-funded project led by Johns Hopkins University faculty members Dr. Jennifer Kingsley, Dr. Shani Mott, and Dr. N.D.B. Connolly who worked with undergraduate students to collect oral histories of Black staff and contract workers employed at the university. The aim of the project was to preserve individual histories of Black workers at Johns Hopkins in an effort to make the archival record more representative of the people who "weave Hopkins into the social and political fabric of Baltimore," yet whose stories remain largely absent from institutional memory.
