The “Unsung Foot Soldier” Oral History Series

No Other Road participants

No Other Road oral history program participants, November 2003.

This public program is a new oral history series sponsored by the Russell Library in association with the Foot Soldier Project that explores the vital contributions of the “unsung foot soldiers” to Georgia’s Civil Rights Movement. By presenting these civil rights veterans in a public forum, the Foot Soldier partners promote awareness of the project, provide educational opportunity to the academic and larger communities, create new research resources through program filming, and recognize those who have been overlooked in civil rights history. The inaugural program was November 2003 and recognized the 1953 Red & Black newspaper editors for their support of desegregation of higher education in Georgia.
