Voices Across the Color Line Oral History video collection, 2005-2006 (VIS 180)
The Atlanta Civil Rights Movement centered around the student community of Atlanta University in the early 1960s.  Activities included the writing of the Appeal for Human Rights, the publication of the Atlanta Enquirer newspaper; the organization of the Atlanta Committee of Cooperative Action, and the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee.  These student based groups led peaceful demonstrations calling for the desegregation of restaurants, public schools, libraries and other public facilities in Atlanta.  This collection consists of 36 interviews by individuals involved in the activism.  Other topics discussed in the interviews include the St. Augustine (Fl) Movement; the organization of H.O.P.E (Help Our Public Education); Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
Voices Across the Color Line Oral History Collection consists of over 40 hours of taped interviews which have been digitized and are available for research.  To view more of the interviews, please visit the Kenan Research Center.
