Part II of this two-part PSN series will explore getting movement oral histories into the archives.  What ethical and practical questions should oral historians, narrators, community members, and activists consider when working with or choosing an archive for their interviews?  What are just ways to negotiate the sometimes tricky issues of ownership, accessibility, accountability, and sustainability?
