Oral History Tour

The A.P. Marshall African American Oral History Archive chronicles the lives and contributions of Black Ypsilantians, both past and present. To build on the original work of A.P. Marshall in the 1980s, we created this video during a tour of Ypsilanti’s historic South Side with five lifelong Ypsilanti residents on May 16, 2017. The short video captures the participants’ memories and conversations, many of which feature names and places from A.P. Marshall’s original interviews.
