Sample Community Projects

The Literacy in the Black Church Context project is undertaken in cooperation with OSU's African and African American Community Extension Center. OSU students, working with liaisons from local churches, ask pastors and congregation members how the Black Church has encouraged, supported and sustained literacy in their community and their lives. All of these narratives about literacy in the Black Church are available in the Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives (DALN).
