About this Event
151 S. Campus Ave., Oxford, OH 45056
"Lived Experiences: Race at Miami University" tells the stories of people of color in the Miami University community during its Public Ivy period—from 1970 to the early 2000s. Funded by Miami's Boldly Creative initiative, the interdisciplinary "Lived Experiences" team filmed oral history interviews with former students, faculty members, and staff members of color to document and spotlight their experiences and perspectives.
Now, an all-new website will showcase these stories, along with rich biographical details and related archival materials that illuminate additional context and historical information related to the events, people, and themes the interview subjects discuss.
During this event, members of the "Lived Experiences" team and those who made it possible will discuss the project and give a tour of the website.
A documentary premiere event will also take place on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 6 p.m. in Shideler Hall Auditorium.
