The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Student movements of the 1960s project

Repository: Columbia University. Center for Oral History

Collection Description (CRHP): The eighty-one interviews that focus on the United States were conducted as part of an oral history project on the 1968 student movement. This project became "A Generation in Revolt," which was edited by Ronald Fraser. The interviews cover almost every aspect and organization of the student movement, including the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, Students for a Democratic Society, the Southern Students Organizing Committee, Progressive Labor, and many more. There are detailed descriptions of the Mississippi Summer of 1964, the 1968 Democratic Convention, the San Francisco and Columbia student strikes, and actions at many other universities. There is also testimony on the women's movement, the gay liberation movement, the Black Panthers, and the Weather Underground. All interviews are transcribed, but several have not been indexed and abstracted.

Collection Description (Extant): The Student Movements of the 1960s Project include a series of interviews that cover student uprisings in three different areas of the world including 1) United States, 2) United Kingdom, and 3) Italy, Germany, France.
