With One New App, The Entire World’s Oral History Is About To Go Viral

Abogado Aly

I spent a lot of my senior year in college working for the pioneering Judge Leon Higginbotham, a presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, who was writing a book about the precepts of slavery. My job was to go back in time. During the Great Depression, the WPA put writers to work by sending them, seven decades after Emancipation Proclamation, to find and interview every living former slave. Judge Higginbotham assigned me to read these oral histories, and glean insights and anecdotes, which I would then pass on.
