Title:Oral history interview with Carnell Locklear, February 24, 2004
Date:2004 Feb. 24
Description:

Carnell Locklear recalls his fight for Lumbee Native American rights in eastern North Carolina in the 1970s and 1980s. He describes his efforts, via both nonviolent protest and legal means, to attain federal assistance for Lumbee Native Americans, who long before had earned government recognition at the price of benefits. Locklear describes his ascent through the ranks of the protestors, his sudden descent and the movement's fracture, and his life after departing the movement.
