Civil Rights Archive on Omeka

Professor K.B. Ng (Queens College School of Library and Information Science) and two graduate students, Valery Chen and Jing Si Feng, have been working on an Omeka pilot project called “The Civil Rights Archive.” Still in its early stages, the project has focused on photographs by Mark Evans and Stan Shaw, both former students of Queens College. This is a just a portion of The Civil Rights Archive of the Queens College, Special Collections, which is curated by Professor Ben Alexander (Queens College) and which documents the civil rights work done by Queens College students in the early 1960s. To date, around 60 images have been digitized, and Dr. Ng expects to lead more independent studies next semester to continue this exciting project.

    Congratulations to the project leads.

    I specially enjoyed the image of the Meridian Freedom School during the Mississippi Freedom Summer project. Looking forward to seeing even more images made available!
