In the Fall of 2017, NPS intern Lorenzo Bright conducted a series of interviews with local Cobb County residents in order to highlight experiences and connections between the end of the American Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement. Below is an article detailing the project, as well as photographs, interviews, and audio clips of Lorenzo's interviews.
