The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories
Detroit African-American history project
Repository: Wayne State University. Walter P. Reuther Library
Collection Description (Extant): One of the strengths of the Detroit African American History Project is found in the interviews that we have included. Interviews of scholars and people that experienced the history that we are seeking to document bring life to subjects that are not always easy to relate in the form of the written word. With passion and energy, these streamed audiovisual interviews have the capacity to reflect more than merely what happened, but the personal sentiment associated with this dynamic history.
Access Copy Note: Clips of interviews are available on the website.
