Abstract

This readers theater presentation of research undertaken through the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) Oral History Project explores the curricular contours of race and place as articulated through the collected stories of inhabitants of the CSRA who have made educational contributions there, of segregation, desegregation, and their enduring influence. Via heretofore undocumented accounts, we seek to illumine something of the educational necessities and narratives—deferred and hoped-for dreams, accomplishments, and curricular possibilities—their stories articulate. In our manner of presentation, we pursue alternative epistemological frames and forms of expression, embracing a multitude of ways of knowing and coming to know in research and education.
