Size Approximately 30 items
Abstract The collection of white videographer and producer Jim White of Chapel Hill, N.C., contains video recordings for the 1992 to 1993 community history project in Holly Springs, N.C., titled "What Was Lost: The Cultural Consequences of School Closings." Directed by professor George W. Noblit from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Education, the project explored the experiences of both whites and African Americans between 1969 and 1972, when multiple Holly Springs public schools closed as a result of consolidation and desegregation. Other materials include documentation that corresponds to the Holly Spring video project, including a project description, partial script, tape logs, newspaper clippings, notes, and correspondence related to the video production and the larger project. Additional videos in the collection are of a 1995 quinceañera celebration in a Latinx community in Granville County, N.C. Acquired as part of the Southern Folklife Collection.

Processing Information

Encoded by: Nicole Cvjetnicanin, April 2019

Updated by: Anne Wells, June 2019

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine ethnic identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual's preference for ethnicity to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at wilsonlibrary@email.unc.edu.
