For those who experienced federally-mandated school desegregation in the 1970s and 1980s, it was something many of them will never forget. American RadioWorks recently took on this very compelling era in American history by sending Kate Ellis and Catherine Winter to Louisville and Charlotte to talk with people about their experiences with school desegregation. They returned with many hours of recordings, and visitors can take in the substantial fruits of their labors on this site. Visitors can listen to the complete radio program here, read a transcript, and also offer their own recollections with this process as well. For those who might be pressed for time, they can also click on photographs of interviewees to take in their individual memories of this period. Educators might find that this program could be used in the classroom as an additional multimedia activity to start discussion about a wide range of topics.
