Creator:Williams, Lois Lucas
Title:Oral history interview with Lois Lucas Williams
Date:1980 Dec. 27

Oral history in which Louis Williams explains the formation of CORE, its leaders, planning and strategy sessions, and her role in the organization as public relations director. She describes various demonstrations held in Greensboro, especially the Thanksgiving 1962 mass arrest and pickets at the cafeterias and theaters in 1963. Williams also provides personal insights into the local and national results of their actions, "movement burnout," uselessness of black studies curricula, and token blacks as window dressings in corporate America.

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.
