Title:Lola Hendricks

Instructional Web site for grades six through twelve featuring an interview from January 1995 with Birmingham, Alabama-based civil rights activist Lola Hendricks about her involvement in the movement.

In this interview, Hendricks describes her role in the Civil Rights movement.

Major funding for this project is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute.

Grade range: 6-12.

A transcript of the Quicktime movie is available.
