In the spring of 1972 Priscilla Long taught a course on "Women in U.S. History" at the University of Rhode Island Extension in Providence, Rhode Island, as a part of the Continuing Education for Women program. The purpose of the course was "to raise the consciousnesses of the course members." In addition to class discussions on women's work, black women, prostitution, the feminist movement, and other subjects--as described in the Syllabus in Folder 1--each woman undertook as a project either a social history of her family or an interview with an older relative or friend. Some of these projects are included here; those on tape are shelved as T-21. Descriptions of the tapes was provided by a researcher.
