In the spring semester of 2002 the Lafayette College Archives began an oral history project to document the education and life experiences of two important groups of Lafayette alumni: African-American and women students from the late 1960s and early 1970s.  Using Lafayette student EXCEL scholars as interviewers during the academic years 2002-03 and 2003-04, approximately fifty interviews were conducted.

Listen to the oral histories.
