Project: St. Benedict the Moor Oral Histories
On the eve of its 75th anniversary, St. Benedict the Moor Catholic Church (located on East 12th Street in Winston-Salem) invited Michelle Gillespie to help write and preserve its history. Michelle partnered with Tanya Zanish-Belcher (ZSR Library’s Director of Special Collections & Archives), as well as her students in Honors 391, to help preserve the church’s collection of archival materials, capture 31 oral histories with the aid of WFU’s Wrought Iron Productions, and analyze the unique history of the church, with the intention of providing St. Ben’s with a website that is both a repository of this rich history and an invitation to multiple audiences to know more about this important community.
Our goalThe DH Community is a program of Wake Forest's Humanities Institute. We are faculty from across campus interested in investigating the emergence of digital humanities as a field of study, and its relevance and usefulness as a research and teaching tool in the humanities.
