African American Railroad Workers of Roanoke: Oral Histories of the Norfolk & Western

The Norfolk & Western Railway Company, now the Norfolk Southern Corporation, has been in Roanoke, Virginia for more than a century.

I interviewed Roanoke's African American railroad workers and chronicled stories that are a powerful testament of personal adversity, struggle and triumph on the rail.
