About the Project

The Journey Continues: African Americans in the Ozarks is a grass roots, interdisciplinary effort that explores themes such as:

  • The experiences of African Americans living and working in Springfield 
  • The impact of history on the way African Americans perceive the community 
  • The roles African American individuals, organizations and institutions have played in Springfield's history 
  • How multimedia can be used to document and share individuals' perspectives in their own words
