At this time, we are developing an Oral History Library with interviews and stories from individuals retelling stories of important events and their heritage on a digital platform. AAHC is a collaborator in the upcoming JUNETEENTH of New Bern events, kicked off with the NB Civic Theatre production of SANKOFA. See the link below.
