History has a greater impact when it connects the people, events, places, stories, and ideas of the past with those that are important and meaningful to the communities, people, and audiences of today. Let's see where Massasoit Community College has been over the years!

Oral History Projects

Massasoit Voices was conducted from 2011-2017 in conjunction with Massasoit Community College's 50th anniversary. The project documents the lives and careers of several Massasoit Community College  administrators, staff, and trustees.

In partnership with the Massasoit Veterans Services, we are conducting The Veterans History Project. Our goal is to collect, preserve, and make accessible the personal recollections of Massasoit men and women who have served in the armed forces.

Fire and Thunder: Massachusetts Blacks in the Civil War

Despite unequal pay and treatment Massachusetts African Americans played a large role during the Civil War, in the Army, Navy, and on the home-front. In various ways blacks in the Commonwealth stepped forward and helped change the course of history. This exhibit tells the story of their courage, strength, and sacrifice; a story of the quest for a nation free from slavery.
