Louisville's 1961 Civil Rights Demonstrations: Acknowledgements

50 Years Later...
Examining Louisville's 1961 Civil Rights Demonstrations

Exhibit Acknowledgements

The idea for an online exhibit marking the 50th anniversary of the 1961 civil rights demonstrations in Louisville came out of the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, but it took many individuals to create the final product. [NOTE: In 2018 the exhibit was moved off of the Omeka server and redesigned to be responsive for mobile devices.]


Dr. Tracy K'Meyer conducted the original interviews and selected portions of them for the exhibit. The interviews are held by the University of Louisville's Oral History Center.


The Office of Libraries Technology set up the open-source Omeka web publishing platform.


The Kentucky Oral History Commission and the Kentucky Historical Society generously granted permission for the use of the video interviews.


With the help of the University of Louisville Photographic Archives, Rachel Howard collected the photographs for this exhibit.


Terri Holtze designed the web site.
