Sara Sinclair is a graduate of Columbia University’s Oral History Master of Arts program. Prior to attending OHMA, Sara lived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where she conducted an oral history project for the International Labour Organization’s Regional Office for Africa. Sara’s work as an oral history consultant includes work for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and the Exit Art Closure Study, a research project on the closure of New York gallery/artist’s space Exit Art (1982-2012).

Sara’s thesis work at Columbia initiated a series of interviews exploring the narratives of university-educated, reservation-raised Native North Americans on returning to their Nations after school. Sara’s work on this project is ongoing in partnership with Voice of Witness, an oral history book imprint that promotes human rights and dignity by amplifying the voices of people impacted by injustice.
