UGA researchers interview Albany civil rights pioneers

March 16, 2006

Albany - University of Georgia researchers are interviewing people from Albany who were a part of the Civil Rights Movement. The researchers are creating an Civil Rights Digital Library. The instructional website will use WALB-TV and WSB-TV footage from the 1960's.

They've spent two days interviewing civil rights pioneers in Albany, to add their stories to the facts. They plan to turn the video and information into an educational website that teachers can use with students.

"We want to tell accurate stories documenting what the clips are telling us. Then we want to put up lesson plans to be used in K-12 classrooms," said graduate student Aggie Ebrahimi.

The project is paid for with a grant from the Museums of Library Services. The researchers plan to visit nine Georgia cities to conduct interviews.

They also plan to come back to Albany to hear more stories. For more information, call Dr. Barbara McCaskill at (706) 338-3393, or email her at bmccaski@uga.edu .
