The Civil rights exhibit

Pete Seeger and a Freedom School class in 1964

The Digital Archive that chronicles the history of the struggle for civil rights in Mississippi can be found at http://digilib.usm.edu/cdm4/crmda.php. It displays an amazing diversity of artifacts. The images alone are stunning, but one should also check out some of the oral histories, as well as books, diaries,letters and other documents of historical significance.
