Voices of Civil Rights

Show Summary

A time of compassion and heroism countered by hate and violence, it took the courage of individuals like Rosa Parks, Medgar Evers and Martin Luther King Jr. to lead a nation toward its rightful destiny. Fueled the inequalities born out of centuries of racial injustice, countless others joined the cause - their stories and perspectives on those trying times are detailed in this collection from History. From sit-ins and Freedom Riders to a nation shocked by Bloody Sunday, Voices of Civil Rights captures the epic sweep and scope of the movement which transformed the nation and includes: "Save Our History: Voices of Civil Rights," a collection of personal narratives created by a group of journalists, photographers, and videographers as they embarked on a bus drip around the country to create the largest archive of oral histories of the civil rights movement; "Crossing the Bridge," filled with stunning footage and memories of activists who lived through an unprovoked attack on civil rights protestors crossing the Edmund Pettis Bridge into Montgomery, Alabama on March 7, 1965; and "Mississippi State Secrets," the truth behind the Missippi State Sovereighty Commission, an organization created by the Mississippi state legislature to preserve segregation.moreless
