Title:General oral history collection

The General Oral History Collection is a continuously growing collection which currently includes over 700 interviews discussing many local history topics. Narrators span races, ages, social class, education, etc. Some of the most common topics include African American history, Ft. Benning, Columbus State University, Phenix City, and teaching in the Chattahoochee Valley region. Many of the interviews have been transcribed, but most just include the original recording.

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.
