The grant covers the collection phase of the project. During this phase, Bloxom will be interviewing twenty men and women who grew up or worked on farms in Accomack County before 1960. Besides creating digitally recorded (audio) oral histories, she will also collect and digitally preserve photographs and memorabilia in anticipation of a gallery exhibit and the creation of a digital database.
