Voices for Civil Rights: Reflections on a Movement

In the final installment of Voices for Civil Rights, we hear some reflections on the Civil Rights Movement as a whole.

Kathleen Cleaver describes a loss in intensity in the movement over the years, while Ruby Sales frames the movement as part of a larger fight for human dignity. Finally, we return to Jamila Jones, who recalls how as a child she struggled to understand the segregation on her daily bus ride.

This series is part of a joint project between the Smithsonian Institution and the Library of Congress.

These oral histories are being added to the holdings at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
