Black Villanova: An Oral History was launched October 2011 at a reception during Villanova's annual Homecoming festivities. Interviews with alumni have subsequently been conducted in Florida, New York City and on the campus of Villanova University. The project's website was unveiled at the "Back and Black: Celebration of the African American Experience at Villanova" event on October 27, 2012. This event brought back to Villanova's campus many participants of the project to re-unite and to re-connect with each other and with their alma mater.
Every attempt has been made to ensure the historical accuracy of the events described in the interviews and in the accompanying documents. The possibility exists that there may be errors and ommissions. Please feel free to contact the project's coordinator, Tom Mogan, at 610-519-4212 or by email at email@example.com if you have questions or concerns.
This oral history project is an evolving historical record. Additional participants in this project are needed in order to contribute to the legacy of African American history at Villanova. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested in being interviewed as part of this project, please contact Tom Mogan at 610-519-4212 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Materials, documents, and photographs are also needed for the website. If you have any materials to donate, please use the contact information above. Photographs and other materials can be scanned and returned to the original owner.
