The narrators featured in our Out of the Archives segment include: Connie Jones, Ernestine Ransom, and Rev. Dr. James Carrington. All of these interviews were conducted by Bob Johnson, former head of the Fair Housing Council and scholar on Black history in Orange County. Johnson was co-editor of A Different Shade of Orange: Voices of Orange County, California, Black Pioneers, a collection of oral history interviews from COPH's collections that focused on the experience of Black migration into Orange County.
