Biographical / Historical

In the fall of 2001, the University of Alabama Huntsville and Alabama A and M hosted a collaborative "series of public lectures, panels, and firsthand accounts of the major developments of the Civil Rights Movement that took place in Alabama from 1954-1965." This project was the result of over two years of planning by UAH faculty John Dimmock, Lee Williams, Jack Ellis, Mitch Berbrier and A and M faculty James Johnson and Carolyn Parker. Sponsors for the series include the Alabama Humanities Foundation, Alabama Senator Hank Sanders, The Huntsville Times, DESE Research Inc., Metavatec Corporation, and Alabama Representative Laura Hall. In the spring of 2003, written transcriptions of each lecture were gifted to the UAH Archives and Special Collections.
