Chronicle of Higher Education article on Marygrove’s John Novak Digital Interview Collection

An article about the John Novak Digital Interview Collection appeared in the September 6 Wired Campus e-newsletter from the Chronicle of Higher Education.

This new and growing collection consists of interviews with African-American Detroiters ranging in age from 65 to 90 recounting their migration to Detroit from various parts of the South. The Collection does not seek to interview famous individuals, but to provide a better understanding of the challenges and choices ordinary people face in their daily lives and to support the goal of learning about history and human progress from the experiences of ordinary individuals. The full collection will debut on October 9, but you can preview an interview now.
