In this detailed exploration of the project, the authors draw on theories of cultural studies and critical pedagogy of place to show how students' work on religion, food, and race exemplifies the use of community literacy to revitalize a distressed economic region. Advancing the discussion of place-based education, The Arkansas Delta Oral History Project is both inspirational and instructive in offering a successful model of an authentic literacy program.
