Re: Curriculum Development

Hi Joseph, I'll throw out a shameless plug for the Queer Newark Oral History Project (which I co-direct at Rutgers-Newark) as one potentially useful resource here, which speaks to the great new law and also offers a semi-local NJ angle. Our website is here:

And we archive the audio and transcripts of interviews here:

Curriculum Development

Hello all, 

New Jersey just passed a law that will require the teaching of the various contributions of Homosexuals and Persons with Disabiltiies in the United States as part of the history curriculum.  I have to be honest, I am hoping some of my colleagues here at H-Net would know of valuable resources that house and/or archive such individuals.  Any information you have would be appreciated.  

Thank you all,

Joseph Dobis
