Interviews were conducting during the early 1990s.
More than 400 of the 1260 interviews have been digitized and can be listened to online. Additionally, many of the interviews include transcripts of the recordings which can be downloaded in PDF format. The majority of the interviews are from people who lived in North Carolina, but other Southern states are also represented.
