The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Oral history collection

Repository: Eastside Heritage Center. Archival and Media Collections

Collection Description (CRHP): There is one interview on the civil rights movement with Tim Martin. It is part of the Lake Hills Project. There are other mentions of Tim Martin in interviews in the Lake Hills collection. Two interviews from the Eastside Women's Project also address civil rights. The interview of Arline Yarbrough addresses her experiences with racial discrimination and the University of Washington's racial integration. The one of Lavern Hall addresses her civic involvement and experience with the National Council of Negro Women. Both interviews address the women's efforts to preserve black history.

Collection Description (Extant): The Oral History Collection contains almost 200 sound and video recordings of interviews with citizens who lived and worked on the Eastside. Many of these interviews were collected as part of research projects dedicated to preserving the history of a particular topic, region, or business. Examples include the Eastside Women Project, the Lake Hills Project, and the Lake Washington Shipyards Project.

Access Copy Note: None of the three aforementioned interviews are digitized, but they have all been transcribed. Many other interviews are available in transcribed form. As of September 2010, a small portion of the interviews are digital.
