- The country's largest archive of oral histories of the Civil Rights Movement.
To collect these hundreds of personal narratives, a group of journalists, photographers, and videographers embarked on a 70-day bus trip around the country. The trove of material they collected makes up the country's largest archive of oral histories of the Civil Rights Movement and will be housed in the Library of Congress. What emerges as people tell us their stories is not a textbook history lesson, but a series of intimate themes that define and humanize the movement's growth and trajectory.
We also provide a "big picture" of what was going on in the country during each period in the movement, from the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision to the assassination of Martin Luther King.
