 Title:  African American Pioneers in Flagstaff Oral History Collection, 1998-2002. ead 
 Date(s):  1998-2002. 
 Abstract:  The interviews in this collection chronicle the growth of Flagstaff's African American community. Following World War II, a significant migration occurred when African American sawmill workers from the southern states found they could earn a higher income in the southwest. In Flagstaff, they found a small logging town unaccustomed to their culture. According to their place of origin, some migrants perceived the city to be relatively accommodating while others did not. Most interviews include informal discussion of the timber industry, World War II, civil rights, and the Flagstaff police department. Project funded by the Arizona Humanities Council.
