Crossroads To Freedom

Crossroads to Freedom is a digital archive of materials that documents the Civil Rights era in Memphis, Tennessee. The purpose of the archive is to promote and support conversations in our community about the impact of this historical era on our city today. As Crossroads Fellows, selected Rhodes students contribute to all aspects of the project.

The archive is always growing and includes interviews conducted by Rhodes students, the 1962 Hearings of the Commission on Civil rights that took place in Memphis, 20 years of the Memphis World newspaper, and select materials from papers of civil rights pioneer Judge Russell Sugarmon.
