A collection of eleven videotaped oral histories (each approximately 20-25 minutes long) of leaders of the Civil Rights movement in Virginia. Voices of Freedom focuses on statewide activities from the 1950s through the early 1970s and includes stories about the "Jim Crow" segregation laws that prevailed up until the mid-1960s; stories about the struggles to change the laws and to change public attitudes; and advice from these civil rights veterans to future generations of Virginians/Americans. Complete transcripts are also available on the website.
