Media and the Movement: Journalism, Civil Rights, and Black Power in the American South is an oral history project that explores the interaction between journalism and activism in the American South before, during, and after the turbulent civil rights era of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
The project was directed by Joshua Clark Davis and Seth Kotch in collaboration with Charmaine McKissick-Melton and Jerry Gershenhorn at North Carolina Central University, along with Jacquelyn Dowd Hall, founder of the Southern Oral History Program. Interviews began in January of 2013. Our fieldworkers include Dr. Gordon Mantler of Duke University, and Joey Ann Fink and Rob Shapard of UNC.
