Grantee Feature: Call for Researchers and Actors for project on the History of African American Miners in California

Thousands of African Americans participated in Northern California’s Gold Rush. Where did they go? A new project will research the lives of African Americans who mined for gold in Shasta and Siskiyou Counties. If you are interested in Ethnic Studies, theatre, archeology, or history, this project is for you! Actors and researchers needed.

Please contact us on the Facebook page for Voices of the Golden Ghosts or at mark@markoliver.org

This project is supported by California Humanities through an Humanities for All Quick Grant.
