Telling the stories of the most storied place

Students take a "shine" to documentary work


This semester students in Dr. Justin Nystrom’s Southern Studies 402 class are doing short documentary projects in support of the Media & Documentary Projects Center’s “Oxonians Oral History Initiative”. Jen Lawrence & Matt Hopper, pictured here, are both in the class and are working together 0n a short documentary about the late Oxonian appliance store owner and politico extraordinaire, Shine Morgan. Just today Jen and Matt were in Studio B interviewing Linda Morgan for their project.

But Jen and Matt are just two of many students in the class and their project is just one of several in production. Check back throughout the semester for more from these up and coming oral historians.
