A Contemporary Oral History of the State
Drawing on the voices of residents from across the state, this oral history reflects on life in Georgia as it evolved throughout the twentieth century.
Author Stephen Doster grew up on St. Simons Island, one of Georgia’s Golden Isles. He began interviewing fellow island residents and captured their personal histories in the book Voices from St. Simons. Now, Doster has expanded the scope of his work to encompass the entire state of Georgia.
In Georgia Witness, Doster records the stories of residents from all across the state, capturing the unique life and history of its many communities. Here are the voices of influential figures and ordinary residents, individuals of varying backgrounds and ethnicities, all of whom remember and contribute to the legacy and lifeblood of the peach state.
