Civil Rights Media Oral History Project

The Civil Rights Movement in Kentucky Oral History Project was a major statewide initiative to document, through oral history interviews, the struggle to end legal segregation in Kentucky between 1930 and 1975. Ethel White specifically focused her interviews on the topic of the Civil Rights Movement in Kentucky from the perspective of the local media. White interviewed former and current editors, journalists, reporters, and news directors who had witnessed, and reported the unfolding of the civil rights activities in Kentucky.
