Rochester Black Freedom Struggle Online Project

The University of Rochester Libraries has created this fine online project to bring together organizational papers, images, oral histories, and ephemera related to Rochester's black freedom experience in the 1960s and 1970s. Visitors can click on the "Oral Histories" area to look over and listen to snippets from some of the interviews conducted in 2008, including talks with police officers, businessman, and local religious leaders. This section also contains several introductory essays that provide more context on the subject. The "Online Exhibits" area includes features on Rocky Simmons, noted activist and photographer. Visitors should not miss the special exhibit "Writings of Consequence: The Art of John A. Williams," which profiles his work as a writer and in particular his novel, "The Man Who Cried I Am."
