Digital Publishing Workshop

LCRM Conference Releases Video

The “Publishing the Long Civil Rights Movement” project team is pleased to announce the release of the Long Civil Rights Movement Conference video!  Many thanks to Seth Kotch, Coordinator of Oral History Digital Initiatives at the Southern Oral History Program, for producing them.  The video is posted in an area of the site that we have named the LCRM Common Room because we look forward to comments and conversations there in response to the panel video.   (Comments on “Common Room” as a name for this area of the site are also welcome.)

Five of the eight panels from the April 2-4 conference are posted so far.  The video will be welcome equally to those who were not able to attend the conference and to those who did attend but wished that they could be two places at once during simultaneous sessions.
