Oral History Interviews for Teaching Online

With much of my teaching moving online in the 2020-21 academic year due to the pandemic, I am seeking assistance in locating online oral history interviews with men and women from West, Central, and East Africa for an undergraduate survey in African history.

Access to interviews would enable me to transition a valuable oral history group assignment from face-to-face to online instruction.
