In partnership with Elizabethton/Carter County Library's Archives, University of Tennessee's School of Information Sciences & Chick History, The Elizabethton Community History Project is working to provide accessible Black history materials for the archive's local collection.
Through this project, we've developed a strong working relationship with Philippi Baptist Church and it's congregation. We've also begun the process of oral history collections.
This project began in April 2019 and will continue into the future with ongoing scan and interview days.
If interested in providing materials or volunteering, our Facebook page is the best place stay informed of upcoming events, or contact us at info[at]blackinappalachia.org
