Save Our History: Voices of Civil Rights
This History Classroom documentary takes a fascinating look at one of America's defining social movements through hundreds of personal narratives from people who lived through the civil rights movement. To get these personal stories, a group of journalists, photographers, and videographers embarked on a 70-day trip around the country. The material they collected makes up one of the country's largest archive of oral histories and will be housed in the Libray of Congress.
