Cultural Memory as Social Justice: The Critical Oral History Methodology (Article)
Title: Cultural Memory as Social Justice: The Critical Oral History Methodology
Author: Geri Augusto, Danita Mason-Hogans, Wesley Hogan
Abstract: In any social justice movement, many people who are involved typically feel unheard and disrespected by larger societal institutions — they often feel that their opinions and voices do not matter, or that their reasons for participating in struggle are distorted. Since academic institutions are a part of a greater power structure, these perceptions hold true when collecting and documenting history in grassroots communities as well. Critical oral history offers a useful tool to employ a true collaborative process that upends the traditional unequal approach to building historical archives of civil and cultural work. The process provides an opportunity to open the floodgates of trust which, inevitably, leads to more accurate information and a greater understanding of societal evolution and mutual understanding. As one of our partners in Brazil said after seeing a presentation on the method, “this takes the idea of ‘popular education’ [a concept developed by Brazilian Paulo Freire] and applies it to building community archives.”
