The goal of this project was to observe the University of Richmond's history in regards to race relations and demonstrations of racism through a combination of interviews and archival research. The project was split between Team Oral History, which conducted interviews via Zoom with Black UR Alumni members to gain a more personal understanding of the nature of race and racism at UR and Team Collegian who looked at archives of the University's news paper to see how race and events around race were documented over time.
