The Africa, African American, and Diaspora program is working with the Shenandoah Valley Black Heritage Project to offer a limited number of community research internships for Spring 2020. Opportunities include three research projects: 1) histories and geographies of African American burial grounds in the Shenandoah Valley, 2) local African American chefs and culinary history, and 3) histories of Lewis Mountain Lodge in the Shenandoah National Park.
While each project is different, research activities could include:
Documentary and oral history research
Photography
Data collection and database management
Digitization and mapping
Developing presentation materials, reports, and booklets
Students accepted into the program would enroll in AAAD 401 and work directly with the Shenandoah Valley Black Heritage Project.  History majors may choose to enroll in HIST 340 History Internship with Dr. Borg.
Interested students should direct information requests and other queries Dr. Kevin Borg, History Department, borgkl@jmu.edu
