Lecture Description

The Seattle Civil Rights and Labor History Project began in 2004 with a tiny budget and a determination to create an online resource for documenting and publicizing stories of civil rights activism in a city that had learned to forget its history of white supremacy. The project has since evolved into a public history success story that offers a model for linking academic and public history, for giving history undergraduates research experience and publishing opportunities, for exploiting the digital revolution and bringing historical research to broad publics and K-12 classrooms, and, most of all, for connecting universities to the communities they serve.
