Project Say Something is a non-profit organization whose mission is to confront racial injustice through black history by using non-violent communication, education, and community empowerment to reconcile the past with the present. Project Threadways is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that records, studies, and explores the history of the textile industry in The Shoals community, and the American South. Together, both organizations are looking to record the African American history of cotton and textiles in the Shoals.
