Title:UWG political heritage collection

The collection consists of audio and video taped interviews of Georgia's Political Heritage Program at the University of West Georgia from 1985-present. The participants discuss their involvement and activities within Georgia politics and may also touch on civil rights, segregation, the Vietnam War, or other topics impacting politics and legislation in Georgia. Interviewees include Roy Barnes, Roy Busbee, Culver Kidd, Dock Davis, as well as other governors, legislators, or political figures.

Civil rights related material in the collection includes an interview with Hosea Williams who worked first as a chemist in Savannah and then with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference before holding political office in Atlanta, Georgia.

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.
