The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

[Oral history collection]

Repository: Houston Public Library. African American Library at the Gregory School

Collection Description (CRHP): Many interviewees discuss the African American 4th ward neighborhood. Rodney Griffin discusses segregation and civil rights from the perspective of a chess player during the 1960s. Bennie Ruth Jackson gives her perspective on race relations. Joan Denkler discusses her experiences in Houston and her activism with affordable housing. Patricia Smith Prather discusses civil rights.

Collection Description (Extant): The African American Library at the Gregory School's oral history project is our campaign to record the personal experiences of men and women who helped shape the African American history of Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas.

Our oral histories capture rich, first-hand experiences from individuals who contribute to African American culture and offer a firsthand view that is Houston's African American experience.
