Civil Rights Veterans Today

14 Apr

An article in Salon on Civil Rights Veterans has interviews and photographs with some people who were also interviewed for Eyes on the Prize I and II.

During the week of Obama’s inauguration ceremony, photographer Lauren Hermele met with several veterans of the U.S. civil rights movement and talked to them about the change of government

The article includes a slide show of black and white portraits of numerous Civil Rights workers including, Roger Wilkins, interviewed for Eyes on the Prize II, and Courtland Cox, Lawrence Guyot, and Bob Zellner (pre-interview only), all interviewed for Eyes on the Prize I. The filmed interviews for Eyes I can be read in their entirety at the Eyes on the Prize I Interview site, produced by Washington University’s Film and Media Archive and Digital Library Services (DLS).
