“Having grown up in Perry, GA, I have always been fascinated with the stories of real, everyday people and their achievements.”
Deitrah Taylor brings a strong interest in historical stories about “everyday” people. The Perry, Ga.-native nurtured her curiosity as an avid listener to her maternal grandparents who lived a few miles away in Hinesville. They shared with her stories about Ft. Stewart U.S. Army Base moving into Hinesville and WWII experiences. They worked in blue collar jobs on the base and experienced life as civilians in a military town.
The stories are endless from there. Taylor holds an MA in History with a specialization in Public History from Georgia College. She has conducted oral histories for a Houston County project and gathered a plethora of research for the “As If We Were Ghosts project.”
