In the summer of 2016, DMSMCA summer student Madrin McGillivray produced an eight minute documentary about the Orioles Boxing Club as part of DMSMCA’s Oral History Project. The club, located at the Orioles Community Centre on Burnell Street, has been turning out provincial and national championship fighters for decades under coach Reg Bruno.

As the Oral Historian Paul Thompson says: “[Oral History] makes for contact – and hence understanding – between generations, and between social classes”. DMSMCA has compiled stories and created an archive of community voices, and short audio documentaries about the neighbourhood. The archive and documentaries will be available for public listening and learning. Please check back here for digital files, as well as transcripts of the interviews.
