The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

[Oral history collection]

Repository: Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama. Chancery Office

Collection Description (CRHP): This oral history collection, conducted by Sister Rose Sevenich, consists of sound recordings and transcripts. The collection description here is based on a partial survey of the collection. Joseph Allen discusses civil rights in 1960, protest marches, and a meeting with President Kennedy discussing civil rights. Michael Joseph White discusses racism in Tuscaloosa. Georgia Bane discusses her involvement with the Civil Rights Movement. Anthony and Mary Jo Rosato discuss Klan violence against Italian Americans and African Americans. Adelaide Lausa and Victor Shomburger also discuss the Klan. Lelia Dirr discusses race relations and voter registration. Although this collection contains an interview with Bishop Joseph Durick, a review of the transcript indicates that there is no discussion of his involvement in civil rights activities.
