Title:Unsung foot soldiers : The Foot Soldier Project for Civil Rights Studies at the University of Georgia
Description:

Web site with information about the Unsung Foot Soldier Project at the University of Georgia. The project researches and documents the lives and work of significant, but less-well-known players in the Civil Rights movement, particularly those from Georgia. The project has produced books and films about Horace Ward and Hamilton Holmes. Portions of those films are available on the site as well as biographies of other influential activists. The site also contains curriculum guides about Hamilton Holmes, Emmett Till, and working with oral histories.

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.
