Behind the Veil website

“A project by the Duke University Center for Documentary Studies that┬árecords and preserves the living memory of African American life during the age of legal segregation in the American South, from the 1890s to the 1950s. One hundred of the 1,000+┬áinterviews have been digitized and made available on this site, with transcripts, totaling about 175 hours of recordings and 10,000 pages of text.”
