Oral project reveals civil rights stories all around

Harriet Lynn, a professor and actor, recently started an award for senior poets writing about Baltimore. Her mother was the winner of the competition several years ago and Lynn has re-started it in her mother’s name. Lynn is now starting an oral project that invites anyone with a story to participate. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of MLK Jr.’s speech and the March on Washington, the project is part of the oral history that is spreading on a national scale to gather stories.

By visiting this website, you can find out about Lynn’s story project titled “All Together Now” sponsored by the Story Center. Lynn’s story details what happened during the Civil Rights Movement era. The 3 minute digital story is now archived online with other personal short stories about civil and human rights.

Make sure you spread the word. Anyone with an interest or story can be a part of the project.
