Title:Civil Rights movement in Kentucky oral history project

Web site with over one hundred oral histories relating to the Civil Rights movement in Kentucky. The oral histories, used in the documentary "Living the Story: the Civil Rights movement in Kentucky" are presented in edited excerpts of the original interview footage. The database provides access to audio and video excerpts, and over 10,000 pages of transcriptions, all of which are full-text searchable and can be sorted by county, by subject or by decade. They may also be browsed by the following categories: life under segregation; desegregation of education; public accommodations; open housing; and protests and demonstrations. The site links to lesson plans using the oral histories that form part of the "Living the Story" Web site.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
