Lift Every Voice Project

by Wicomico Public Libraries (circa 2020)

1 box (0.25 linear feet)

The "Lift Every Voice" project was aimed to engage local teens with older local members of the African American community who could provide memories and recollections of race relations and racial injustice in Salisbury and Delmarva. Along with these interviews, participating teens would meet in a community poetry workshop to create a community poem from the content of their interviews.
