The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories
Kennesaw State University oral history project
Repository: Kennesaw State University. Department of Archives, Special Collections and Records Management
Collection Description (Extant): The Kennesaw State University oral history project consists of three series: the Kennesaw State University Oral History Series, the Cobb County Oral History Series, and the Cobb NAACP/Civil Rights Series (2009).
The Cobb NAACP/Civil Rights Series consists of forty transcripts of oral history interviews done with a variety of people across Cobb County. The purpose of the project is to collect personal experiences of people with the Cobb County Branch and its predecessor, the Marietta Branch, of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), as well as the Civil Rights movement in Cobb County, Georgia. The series was conceived as part of the 100th anniversary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 2009. It was a joint effort between Dr. Scott's HIST 4425 (Oral History) undergraduate class at Kennesaw State University and the Cobb County Branch of the NAACP. Students met with and interviewed subjects. Copies of the interview transcripts have been placed on deposit in the Kennesaw State University Dept. of Archives, Special Collections, and Records Management and the Georgia Room of the Central Library and the Hattie G. Wilson Library of the Cobb County Public Library System, in addition to other locations. The interviews are available in bound and digital pdf/a formats. They are arranged by the volume numbers assigned during the transcription process, from 1 to 40.
Access Copy Note: Reference copies also available at the Hattie G. Wilson Library of the Cobb County Public Library System.
