Oral History Association Virtual Exhibit

Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Oral History Association.

Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.

From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with one of our acquisitions editors, and more.


The events of the past few months have brought new attention to subjects like police brutality, institutionalized racism, protests and activism, and more. These subjects are among the pillars of the UNC Press publishing program, and have cast new light on some of our newest books, and some of our classic bestselling titles.

Some of these books are highlighted in our Justice, Power, and Politics series.

You can also check out our full listing of new and classic books in African American Studies.
