History Days provide opportunity for former and current textile and apparel workers to share their personal stories through oral history interviews and personal and company photographs and documents, such as, company published newspapers and letters. The purpose of these history days was to provide a comfortable, but scholarly setting for people to share their memories.
All digitally recorded interviews and high quality scanned images and documents collected during the event are archived in the Center for Public History at the University of West Georgia. The stories captured will be used for research and to further the importance of textile history in this region.
Communities interested in hosting their own Textile History Day are encouraged to contact Trail Coordinator Chanell Lowery or Trail Curator Brandon Cohran at the Center for Public History at 678-839-6141 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
