Digitizing Civil Rights in Brooklyn: A Collaborative Project with the Brooklyn Public Library

Projects in Digital Archives students present on a collaborative project with the Brooklyn Public Library to digitize audio interviews from the Civil Rights in Brooklyn Collection. In these recordings, members of Brooklyn Congress of Racial Equality recount how they organized against housing discrimination, segregation in public schools, and inadequate municipal services in the 1960s.10-brklyncore
