Media and the Movement

Activists gather at WAFR-FM in Durham, North Carolina.

This project, funded by a $130,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, explores the media environment in North Carolina as shaped by local voices. We are interviewing print journalists, broadcasters on television and radio, community activists and organizers, and others about how the media adapted to, changed, and reflected a new South during and after the civil rights movement of the 1960s.
