Mississippi University for Women Undertakes an Oral History of the Local Civil Rights Movement

Students in an African American history class at the Mississippi University for Women in Columbus are conducting an oral history project involving local residents recollections of their participation in the civil rights movement. Eleven students are conducting the interviews which will be digitally stored at the Columbus-Lowdnes Public Library. The students embarked on the project due to a lack of published information on the civil rights movement in communities near the university’s campus.
