Stories of Knox County is an oral history project aimed at capturing what it means to be a part of this community. We are especially interested to explore how the county’s history has shaped the present and the ways its inhabitants envision the future. We hope to achieve this by gathering stories about people’s daily lives, their values, hopes, and aspirations. The project aims to interview a cross section of residents that are both diverse and representative of the community. Hence, it will strive to include, among its interviewees, variety in age, belief systems, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, level of activity in the community, and geographic localization within the county (i.e., urban/rural). The stories we gather will be shared with the community as a public presentation and a digital exhibit.
