"Songlines" The Historic Jarvisburg Colored School

This grant supports research and development activities for the project "'Songlines' The Historic Jarvisburg Colored School. The Historic Jarvisburg Colored School (HJCS) was founded by freed slave William Hunt in 1868. The "Songlines" Project will capture their creative, childhood daily life through southeastern regional songs as sung by their grandchildren, great-grandchildren and local school children, making this a truly multi-generational research project.
