North Carolina in Transition

In collaboration with Sampson Community College, Clinton
Featuring Jessica Stanford, Demographic Analyst, Carolina Demography, Carolina Population Center and Rachel F. Seidman, Director, Southern Oral History Program
This seminar will feature two scholars examining our great state, with a look to the past and the future. Professor Stanford’s lecture explores how North Carolina’s population has changed since 1990 and how it might change in the next 20 years. She’ll compare these results with national trends and provide an overview of how our state is changing with respect to urbanization, race and ethnicity, education, income, and aging. Professor Seidman will explore how oral history can help us understand these demographic trends by highlighting interviews from the Southern Oral History Program’s collection that bring new insight into past and present challenges.
This event is free and open to the public.
