African American Studies Critical Guide to OHAM: Home

African American Studies Critical Guide to OHAM

Yale’s Oral History of American Music (OHAM) collection—an ongoing oral history project, which began in 1969—is home to over 2,800 audio and video interviews with key contributors to our twentieth and twenty-first century American musical landscape. OHAM’s interviewees are primarily composers, but include a number of music critics, music theorists, record producers, executives, and innovators in the field of music technology. This critical research guide highlights the African American voices in OHAM’s collection, as well as those whose work has been influenced by and/or indelibly shaped African American music from the early twentieth century through today.
