The Virginia Commonwealth University Department of African American Studies, in collaboration with the Richmond City Council Slave Trail Commission and Elegba Folklore Society, is inviting all African Americans, 90-years of age and above, who were born and raised in Richmond and the surrounding area, to participate in the Richmond African American Oral History Project.

The VCU Department of African American Studies will record each participant on film so that future generations will have access to the wealth of knowledge and information contained in their personal stories and experiences.

Filming will be conveniently done in the homes of participants. All African Americans, 90-years of age and above, who were born and raised in Richmond and the surrounding area, are encouraged to participate in this important project and share their story.

All citizens are invited to tell their family members, neighbors and friends about this project and encourage and assist with their participation.
