’Unwritten: Archaeology of Jim Crow Mobile’ at USA Archaeology Museum

The USA Archaeology Museum’s exhibit, “Unwritten: Archaeology & Oral History of Jim Crow Mobile” demonstrates the best of archaeology and oral history, and that the sum is greater than its parts. Revealing the impact of what it means to be left out of the commonly told history, and showing the resilience of community members during and after Jim Crow, this exhibit and ongoing projects allow us to understand our present as a product of the past, and consider how we can make a better future.

The Owens Family, one of the three families highlighted in “Unwritten” lived at 906 S. Franklin Street for six decades and through three generations. When archaeologists excavated their property during the I-10 Mobile River Bridge Archaeology Project, it provided a rare opportunity to learn about one family through historic documents and the things they left behind.
