Coastal Voices is a community-led oral history project capturing the heritage of coastal North Carolina, drug
sharing stories of people whose lives have been shaped by the maritime environment of Hatteras Island, Ocracoke, and Down East. As coastal North Carolina undergoes change, residents want to ensure that their community’s legacy of resiliency and strength is documented for future generations.
Visit Carolina Coastal Voices (www.carolinacoastalvoices.com) to listen to excerpts from the oral history interviews.
Coastal Voices is an ongoing project with new stories and other material added to the collection through support from local, regional and national partners, supporters and volunteers.
