It’s the 50-year anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement and I was asked to help create a timeline of Queens College’s involvement in the movement by their Civil Rights Archives.
Civil Rights Archivist, Alexandra Dolan-Mescal launched the “50 Years Ago Today” social media project today. Each day she will tweet an item from exactly 50 years ago. Those tweets will then be collected on the timeline I help create on the organizations website.
The 50-year anniversaries of the Mexico Volunteers, Student Help Project in Prince Edward County, VA, and the Mississippi Freedom Summer are all coming up.
You can follow the tweets at @fromADMwithlove or search for the hashtags #50yrstoday & #QCcivilrights.
