About this collection

The Tom Crosby Oral History Collection, consisting of forty-four oral history interviews, explores African-American education in South Carolina during segregation. Interviews primarily focus on Rosenwald schools, Allen University, and sports at Sims High School in Union County, South Carolina. Forty-one of the forty-four interviewees are African-American and describe their educational experiences and the features of their individual schools. Of note is Dorothy Evans who, interviewed at age 104, was a 1924 graduate of Allen University. Interviews were conducted by Tom Crosby, with the exception of the two in which he is the interviewee, conducted by Andrea L'Hommedieu, between 2006 and 2011.​
