Old Dominion University Creates Digital Archive for Lamberts Point, Norfolk, Virginia

Old Dominion University has created an online archive about a historically African-American neighborhood in Norfolk, Virginia. “For the last 18 months, a team of 20 worked on a project known as ‘Mapping Lamberts Point,’ in which undergraduate and graduate students interviewed residents who grew up in the 1950s and ‘60s about the neighborhood’s evolution. The team also collected stories from the early 20th century from the Norfolk Journal and Guide, a publication focusing on African-American news and issues.”
