The Unified Committee for Afro-American Contributions (UCAC) has conducted over 175 oral histories of African American life in St. Mary’s County. These stories focus on African American life in the twentieth century, providing rich accounts of everyday life and the long-term effects of the Jesuit mission on African American communities. These oral histories are curated through the SlackWater Archive at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
