Oral Histories

rosie-the-riveter-oral-historiesIn partnership with the Regional Oral History Office at UC Berkeley, the park has brought former Rosies and home front workers together to be interviewed in this compelling series of videos. There are nearly two hundred interviews in this archive that chronicles an amazing part of our history. These include many local Richmond stories, including a tale of the Boxcar Village in Richmond told by Bertha Hicks, and an interview with the oldest Park Ranger and former worker in a Jim Crow Union Hall, Betty Reid Soskin. Clips from some of these interviews appear in the film, Hometown Heroes, shown at the Visitor Center.
