African American Funeral Programs, The Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center, Bulloch County, Georgia database is a collaborative project between The Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center (WHHRC), Georgia Southern University Department of History, and the Georgia Southern University Libraries. The stories of the lives of African Americans have been vastly underrepresented, resulting in gaps in the complete history of America. The decision to save funeral programs of African Americans of Bulloch County and those who migrated North, was made over thirty years ago by Dr. Alvin D. Jackson, President of the Board of Trustees of the WHHRC. Join us for a pre-recorded viewing on how collaborations between a community-based organization and a university library can work together to develop an online archive of searchable African American Funeral Programs.
