Oral History Initiative Gets BIG boost from Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q

Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q of Birmingham, Alabama is the lead underwriter of the SFA oral history initiative. Nick Pihakis has pledged a total of $75,000 over the course of five years. The SFA will raise matching funds so that we can hire an oral historian. Among the initial duties we see such a person undertaking will be surveying existing oral histories relating to food, and establishing an outreach program that identifies both interviewers and subjects. And, of course, we see that person in the field, doing interviews. Thanks Nick; thanks Jim 'N Nick's.
