Oral Histories

Jeanne Brown

Jeanne Brown donates her oral history to the collection.

Like the other historical sources on this site, the oral history collection documents community resilience, civic engagement and neighborhood organizing, and urban development and redevelopment.  Participants in the oral history project were identified with the help of Peoplestown residents, the Peoplestown Revitalization Corporation, and Emmaus House.
