The city of Ann Arbor has a very colorful history, and some of the best storytellers in Ann Arbor are the African American women interviewed by Lola Jones and her daughter Carole Gibson. Their organization, called Another Ann Arbor, Inc., produced two documentary films from the interviews. "Ann Arbor: A Woman's Town" covers the first half of the twentieth century. The second film, "A Change Was in the Air" chronicles the tumultuous Civil Rights Era in Ann Arbor, from the 1950s-1975.
This web site is a collection of clips from the two documentaries. In these clips, you'll meet several women who not only tell the story of Ann Arbor, but were actually part of the history.
