Nanc Nolan Jones

Community Researcher

Nancy Nolan-Jones began recording her family’s stories more than twenty years ago, long before she knew becoming an Oral Historian was her life’s purpose. While serving as the Executive Director of the African American Museum in Cleveland, she started recording the oral narratives of others. She has been instrumental in developing several narrative collections, including “Reflections of Black Life in Greater Cleveland, 1920 to Present.” Currently, Nolan-Jones is honored to serve as a Community Researcher for the Voicing and Action Project because she believes in the power of how our stories connect us and help build the community.
