Oral Histories

LM Oral Histories


Through collaboration with local residents, the Living Museum seeks to tell the history of the Lower Ninth Ward through the perspective and voices of those who live there.  In doing so, the museum team has been working to record oral interviews with residents. Since the Museum has opened, more than 60 Lower Ninth Ward residents have graciously shared generations of stories and experiences with the Living Museum, to be included in the final museum exhibits.

All of the oral histories are available to researchers. If you are interested in gaining access to the database please email

For a sneak peak of the resident interviews, check out this preview video!
