Valdosta Project Change Scrapbooks, 1997-2003

 

Valdosta's Project Change, one of only four such programs set up in the nation was established in 1991 in order to help combat friction between different racial and ethnic groups. The mission of Valdosta Project Change was to dismantle institutional racism and encourage community empowerment through increased education and access to small business loans and homeownership opportunities. This collection features digitized copies of four Valdosta Project Change publicity scrapbooks covering the years 1997-2003. The scrapbooks hold newspapers clippings, predominately from the Valdosta Daily Times. This collection is property of the Lowndes County Historical Society and was digitized in coordination with the Valdosta State University Archives and Special Collections in 2023.
