Lunch-N-Learn – Star Spangled Sounds: Performing Veteran Oral Histories
Wednesday, December 14, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFREE
In conjunction with our special exhibit “Star Spangled Sounds: Stories of Music and the Military”, the Earl Scruggs Center and UNC-Chapel Hill’s Southern Oral History Program are proud to present a Lunch-N-Learn – Star Spangled Sounds: Performing Veteran Oral Histories.
Since 1973, the Southern Oral History Program at UNC-Chapel Hill has worked to preserve the voices of the southern past. We have collected more than 5,000 interviews with people from all walks of life—from mill workers to civil rights leaders to future presidents of the United States. This semester, the SOHP’s student interns have conducted oral history interviews with veterans. This performance is a culmination of the interns’ training in oral history, in which they will use the narratives of their interviewees to highlight the lived experiences of the men and women who have served, and continue to serve, our country.
Bring your own lunch or pre-order a $10 boxed lunch:
6″ Grilled Chicken Sub
6″ Grilled Steak Sub
6″ Vegetarian Sub
All subs come with chips. All boxed lunches come with a choice of bottled water or canned soda.
Please place your order by Monday, December 12th at noon.
