DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit labor library has been awarded a grant to boost discovery and access to its oral histories of prominent leaders.

Wayne State University said its Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor and Urban Affairs received the $109,000 grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission. It will allow archivists to work on descriptions that will make 1,600 oral histories easier to discover by researchers.

The histories have been donated to the library or conducted by staff members during the last four decades. They include interviews of civil rights and social activists Cesar Chavez and Grace Lee Boggs.
