      The Jack Rabin Collection of Alabama Civil Rights and Southern Activists http://www.libraries.psu.edu/psul/digital/rabin.html  

      Jack Rabin was a faculty member at a number of institutions during his long academic career, and he was intimately involved with certain aspects of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. During time spent in Alabama he worked with the organizers of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. He also accumulated a tremendous collection of photos and interviews related to this event and others. This online collection from the Pennsylvania State University Libraries brings together many of these documents. Visitors can get started here by watching a historic interview with Stokely Carmichael or watching an excerpt from the Selma March in 1965. Also, visitors are encouraged to search the collection, read a biography of Rabin, and peruse the finding aid. [KMG]

        Rising Up: Hale Woodruff's Murals from Talladega College
        http://www.high.org/Art/Exhibitions/Rising-Up-Hale-Woodruff.aspx

        In 1938, Talladega College commissioned Hale Woodruff, an African-American
        muralist, to paint six murals that were installed in the Savery Library on
        campus, where they remained for more than 70 years. In 2011, the murals were
        removed from the walls of the Library as part of a collaborative project
        between Talladega College and the High Museum to conserve the murals, which
        are on display at the Museum until September 2012. At the website, visitors
        can not only see images of conservators literally peeling the murals off the
        library walls, but also examine digital versions of the artwork. For
        example, zoom in on the Portrait of Cinqué, one of the leaders of the
        Amistad rebellion, to see biographical information, or follow another link
        to see a comparison of the figure of a dead mutineer with Géricault's "The
        Raft of the Medusa," an art historical icon with which Woodruff would have
        been familiar. Other murals in the series are: The Trial of the Amistad
        Captives, The Repatriation of the Freed Captives, The Underground Railroad,
        Opening Day at Talladega College, and The Building of Savery Library. [DS]
