“Memories of a Lifetime” will continue to be a part of the three-day 2018 Johnny Cash Heritage Festival, and organizers are looking for submissions from people who were part of the Dyess Colony.

The “Memories of a Lifetime” project, which began last year during the inaugural festival, is a collection of videotaped interviews, photos and documents related to the colony. The project deepens the level of understanding of the historic site and the New Deal era.

“Hearing firsthand from those who lived in the colony provides insight that you could never find in a history book,” said Dr. Ruth Hawkins, director of the Arkansas State University Heritage Sites, of which the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home is a part. “The interviews we have collected thus far recount some amazing stories that many people today cannot even imagine.”   MORE
