What are Avondale Oral Interviews?


Eddie Akin, a doctoral student of Dr. Wayne Flynt, conducted interviews with textile workers throughout Alabama during the 1970s and 1980s. The staff of the B.B. Comer Library digitized and made available what Dr. Flynt  calls “an unmatched collection of oral history tapes about a single textile empire.”
