Acting Director David Cline reports …

The Southern Oral History Program and the Long Civil Rights Movement project were well represented at the Oral History Association conference in Louisville, Kentucky last week, October 14-18. Acting Director David Cline attended sessions, met with potential collaborators, and conducted six new interviews about Louisville’s busing history; Outreach Coordinator Beth Millwood presided over a session devoted to Institutional Review Boards; former Associate Director Kerry Taylor presented work on his oral histories of the Obama campaign and black political networks in South Carolina; and former LCRM student research assistants Jennifer Dixon and Rachel Martin presented on their research about Charleston’s 1969 hospital workers’ strike and school desegregation in Tennessee, respectively. All told, it was a fine showing for the SOHP!
