If you have an oral history project, get in touch with the Word of Mouth website, which compiles information on sources of oral history and recordings across Africa.

"On the website "Word of Mouth" we compile information on institutions and initiatives dealing with the topic of orality in African countries or in Germany. We also provide information on our own projects which deal with oral traditions and contemporary forms of oral expression on the continent."
