Description

VOW Book Series: VOW has so far published thirteen titles in its series. We publish an average of two oral history titles each year, with our thirteenth book, Palestine Speaks,released in November 2014. To date, our series has covered a wide variety of social justice issues, ranging from post-9/11 civil rights and the criminal justice system to the experiences of men and women living under oppressive regimes in Burma, Zimbabwe and Colombia.

VOW Education Program: Our education team offers year-round site visits and workshops for schools and community organizations, a summer intensive oral history training called Amplifying Unheard Voices, and common core aligned curriculum through our website and publication The Power of the Story: The Voice of Witness Teacher’s Guide to Oral History. Over the past year, we reached over 9,000 high school to graduate level students.
