It’s the Seventh Summer For Crossroads

Publication Date: 6/22/2012

Although Rhodes’ Crossroads to Freedom digital library is maintained throughout the year, the bulk of gathering new material, recording interviews, editing transcripts, and uploading interview is done in the summer. There are now about 125,000 items in the Crossroads archive which is made up of videos, documents, newspapers, images and oral histories that tell the stories of Memphis and the region.

This is the seventh summer for Crossroads, and this year’s fellows are working on the following collections:

  • An Interactive map that begins to capture the ways communities near Rhodes understand their own identities
  • The music legacy of Manassas High School
  • Memphis Public Celebrations—Cotton Carnival, Cotton Makers’ Jubilee, Memphis in May
