The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

University of Connecticut, Center for Oral History interviews collection

Repository: University of Connecticut. University Libraries. Thomas J. Dodd Research Center

Collection Description (CRHP): The Peoples of Connecticut subset includes oral histories with African Americans in Connecticut that were conducted around 1975, so much of the interviews deal with life prior to the civil rights era, but the interviews do mention civil rights and black power leaders, including MLK, Malcolm X, encounters with members of the Black Panther Party, and instances of segregation and integration. These interviews contain civil rights themes or experiences of discrimination in virtually all of the interviews, even if the bulk of the interview does not deal directly with this time period.
