Help tell the story of Hurricane Dorian

Our Project
 
Dorian and Beyond is a digital storytelling + story-keeping project that records and preserves interviews with survivors of Hurricane Dorian. Its oral history archive is accessible to interested members of the public via the project’s website . This curation responds to the urgent need to ensure that these stories are not lost. They will be recorded and remembered. These individual testimonies constitute a collective memory, affirming a shared sense of trauma and loss as well as resilience.

This collection of stories is intended to be a cross-section of Bahamians who experienced Hurricane Dorian. It pays particular attention to survivors who were on The Abacos and Grand Bahama when the storm hit. The Project’s focus on local participants and vendors will have an immediate impact which is coupled with an international reach as well an enduring, ever-increasing value.
 
Guided by an experienced Bahamian professional historian Crystal A. deGregory, Ph.D. with international programmatic and publishing repute, Dorian and Beyond is designed to utilize public and private resources to bring to bear the time, talents, and treasures of Bahamian professionals and creatives to preserve, protect, and popularize the stories of resilience in the face and wake of one of the deadliest hurricanes in recorded history.
 
What you are supporting?
 
Your support makes our work as facilitators, oral historians, and archivists possible. A gift ensures that the story of the history-making hurricane, and the resilience of the Bahamian people in response to it, is preserved for future generations.

When you donate to Dorian and Beyond, your funds go directly to maintaining our website and capturing new stories. You are also supporting our team of young Bahamian researchers, creatives, and entrepreneurs who work together to make this project possible.
