A project sponsored by AARP, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR), and the Library of Congress to collect and preserve personal accounts of America's Civil Rights Movement. The Web site includes photographs, timelines, a glossary, a quiz, an annotated bibliography, personal narratives, an interview with Eleanor Holmes Norton, and a feature on Jackie Robinson.
