Civil and Voting Rights in the Deep South

We previously noted the oral history project on the civil rights movement of the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress.  As one in a series of public events, Many Paths to Freedom: Looking Back, Looking Ahead at the Long Civil Rights Movement, the Center will be hosting a “Scholars Roundtable” from 12 noon to 1:30 on April 17, entitled Locality and Nation: Civil Rights and Voting Rights in the Deep South, 1963-1966.  The speakers will be Hasan Kwame Jeffries, Ohio State University, and Thomas Jackson, UNC-Greensboro.
