In Black communities, for various reasons, history is often passed down verbally. Events of the past end up taking the shape of legends. The stories of prominent people go undocumented, and sometimes forgotten. Our Community Research Team works to verify, document and archive this oral history - - digging into crates, newspapers and historical records to reveal and protect important information about Black Lorain.
