Mari Evans: An Oral History

Posted on Posted in HBW

Over two days in March 2013, the Project on the History of Black Writing conducted what would become the last formal interview Mari Evans gave. Alysha Griffin (former HBW Special Projects Coordinator) and Shayn Guillemette (former Graduate Assistant) visited Mari Evans at her residence in Indianapolis, IN. This interview was later transcribed by the Spencer Research Library at the University of Kansas.

This unpublished interview served as the basis for our GEMS tribute video. We welcome you to view the interview in its entirety as we continue to reflect on the legacy and contributions of Mari Evans.
