The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Anne Braden: southern patriot

Repository: Appalshop. Archive

Collection Description (CRHP): This collection consists of the raw interview and other footage used for the making of the film titled 'Anne Braden: Southern Patriot.' The film was released in 2011. Some ten people were interviewed specifically for the film, including Anne Braden and a number of activists who worked with her in the 1960s, such as Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee activist Bob Zellner. Other interviews are also included in this collection as well as footage from Braden's memorial service. This film project began in 2004, and some related photographs (copies, not originals) are part of this collection.

Access Copy Note: The interviews are not transcribed but are briefly notated.

Digital Status: Partial

Extent: circa 25 video recordings; photographs

Language: English

Related Archival Items: The raw material for this film will eventually be part of Appalshop's Archive. The archive has other films and raw audiovisual material that deal with African Americans and may relate to civil rights. One of these is a film on Evelyn Williams, an African American woman who grew up in Appalachia and moved to New York City. When she returned to Kentucky, she got involved in environmental activism. There also is a film that deals with environmental justice issues in West Virginia and addresses West Virginia State College, the historically black institution there.

Interviewees: Anne Braden
