Community, Culture, and Expression: African-American Leadership in the Mississippi Delta, 1950-90

To support a collaborative oral history of grassroots civil rights and community leaders of the 50s and 60s in four Mississippi Delta counties, documenting and interpreting their activities over the last thirty years.

Our collaborative group will interview approximately 120 grassroots civil rights and community leaders in four counties (and their towns) in the Mississippi Delta between 1995 and 1997. We intend to document the political, social, and economic experiences of Delta activists over the last 30 years. We will: 1) create an oral history collection that will be housed in Special Collections at Tougaloo and Dickinson Colleges; 2) train Tougaloo undergraduates in the methods of oral history fieldwork; and 3) write an interpretive study, Mississippi Narratives: Interpretive Dynamics in Oral History.
