The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Oral histories in the National Equal Justice Library

Repository: Georgetown University. Law Library

Collection Description (Extant): The National Equal Justice Library has over 70 oral history recordings on VHS and DVD, including interviews with members of the defense team in the landmark Gideon v. Wainwright case, which upheld the constitutional right to counsel in criminal cases; Hillary Clinton, who served on the board of the Legal Services Corporation in the 1970s; and other leading figures in legal services history.

They are working to duplicate and transcribe these oral histories. As the materials become available, we will make them available here on our website.
