Date:2016 Oct. 31-2018 Dec. 5

The Atlanta Student Movement Project is a research project funded by a generous grant from the Rich Foundation, conducted by Kennesaw State University undergraduate and graduate students, and led by Dr. Jeanne Law Bohannon (KSU English Department) along with Dr. Lonnie King, the project's senior community partner. The oral histories in this collection represent the goal of the project: uncovering and preserving the history of Atlanta sit-ins and student protests that were pivotal in the success of the Student Movement, the Civil Rights movement, and the history of the city of Atlanta as a whole. Videos and transcripts in this collection have been archived at the KSU Archives.

Formed early in 1960, the Atlanta Student Movement was one part of the larger Civil Rights Movement. The group was comprised of students from university campuses that were part of the Atlanta University Center (AUC), a consortium of higher education centers for African-Americans that included Atlanta University, Clark College, Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse College, Morris Brown, and Spelman College.
