iTunes U is an amazing, free repository for educational material for primary, secondary, and college level learning. Duke University’s Library has posted its collection, “Behind the Veil: Documenting African American Life in the Jim Crowe South.”

The collection includes more than 300 digitized recordings of interviews with African Americans that lived through segregation throughout the south, with a focus on the Charlotte-Durham-Enfield regions on the state of North Carolina.

You can learn more about the production and the full collection here and download the contents via iTunes U here.

About Jennifer Carey

My name is Jennifer Carey and I am a student and educator of the human condition. I have long studied history, trained in archaeology, and found a passion in the field of education. As a long-time lover of technology (my father bought our family our first Apple IIe when I was three), I love technology and what it can bring to the classroom. I have taught at various Universities for many years as well as educating gifted teenagers through the Johns Hopkins program, the Center for Talented Youth. I am currently the Director of Educational Technology at the Ransom Everglades School (a secular independent school) in Miami, Fl. I also have a few educational podcasts on iTunes from my days teaching at TCU: The Ancient City of Rome, Classical Archaeology (2008), Classical Archaeology (2009), Introduction to Classical Myth, and Ancient Eats. They’re enhanced (so you get the PowerPoints along with the vocal), but please excuse the poor audio editing. Feel free to Email Me or follow me on twitter.
