- 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. The leadership of the Civil Rights movement was largely defined by major figures like Martin Luther King Jr., but behind the scenes were people like Lola Hendricks who helped organize the community and filed lawsuits to end discrimination and segregation. In this interview, Hendricks describes her role in the Civil Rights movement.
