This site appears to be currently under repair. As it is descirbed: "The purpose of Historical Voices is to create a significant, fully searchable online database of spoken word collections spanning the 20th century - the first large-scale repository of its kind."
This Site provides access to the full audio recordings of oral histories. You will hear the actual spoken words of oral history narrators. No transcriptions available. The CSULB oral history collections include topics ranging from women's social history and ethnic studies to Long Beach Area history and the Arts in Southern California. Some of the interviews in the Asian-American, Mexican-American and women's history collections date back to 1972 and include intervees born in the 1860s.
