Disclaimer on People and Perspectives Materials
PRIM&R does not support or endorse the views shared by participants featured in the video, audio, and text files found on this website. 
 
The stories on the People & Perspectives website are personal recollections shared by the narrators and are not intended as an official record of the events described. Rather, as primary material, the interviews present the narrators' personal reflections and interpretations of those events, providing access to multiple perspectives and adding nuance and complexity to our understanding of historical developments.  As such, statements in the oral histories should not be understood as statements of fact, and PRIM&R encourages listeners to understand these stories in the context of broader, historical research on the issues and events discussed.
