In Planning a Community Oral History Project (Barbara W. Summer, Nancy MacKay, and Mary Kay Quinlan), the second volume in the Community Oral History Toolkit series, readers are presented with the ethical, methodological, and legal frameworks which guide successful and respectful community oral history projects. The authors of this review present this review as an oral history of our reading, composed by readers representing different viewpoints and positionalities. We do so in an attempt to explore the book’s potential audiences and consider the applicability of its advice to varied readers, as well as to embrace the ethical and methodological ideas put forth by Summer, MacKay and Quinlan. The collective knowledge of a community has more weight and value than that of any one person in the community.
