04/14/2020Battling for Belfast: How Black Cab Tour Guides Shape the Memory of the TroublesIn Belfast, one of the most popular tourist attractions is a Black Cab Tour, which is a tour of Belfast with a focus on the Troubles. The best part of the tour is that it is led by a cab driver - a person who was alive during and was directly impacted by the Troubles. The stories that they tell during the tours help to shape the world's memory of how the Troubles happened and how the city is healing presently. Morgan conducted 10 oral histories with these guides and plotted a map of their stops along the tours to see if Catholic or Protestant stories were told more. What she found was groundbreaking! Listen in to learn why!Morgan Cantrell7:00 PMRegister
