The Civil Rights in Black and Brown oral history project originateed at TCU in 2015 under the direction of history professor Max Krochmal. Covering the period since the onset of civil rights era, project staff conducted interviews with African American, Mexican American, and white activists located throughout Texas to develop new depth to the study of black/brown” and multicultural relations past and present. The project recovers the role of local people in the black civil rights and Chicano/a movements in Texas and sheds new light on the relationships between local, state, and national actors. The interview database (http://crbb.tcu.edu) is a publicly accessible, free, and user-friendly multimedia digital humanities website that provides digital video clips from the interviews to researchers as well as teachers, journalists, and the general public. Over 500 interviews were conducted in 2015 and 2016 by project faculty and graduate assistants.
