Revisiting civil rights history

Many historians trace the civil rights movement back 50 years ago to when a group of four African American students hosted a sit-in at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina.

 

Did you or your relatives experience the civil rights movement firsthand? Or, have you visited civil rights sites in your area? We’d like to hear your stories of what it was like to live in the U.S. during this time.

 

Share your images and stories of your experiences with the civil rights movement. We’re interested in hearing about the past, but also how the reminders of the movement have lived on in your town.

 

Assignment guidelines:
- Format: Photos and text
- Please write about your experiences in the text field
- Deadline: On-going
