Links to History: BackStoryRadio.org and The Civil Rights Digital Library

As a history blogger with a decent sized audience (and surprisingly good search engine rankings), I'm often contacted to promote local events, websites, publications, etc...

Most of those that contact me do have relevant information that my readers would enjoy, but too often I don't find time to post their requests. This will change.

From now on I'll post these findings every so often as... "Links to History".

This is the first of such postings... enjoy.

backstoryradio.org - BackStoryRadio is a call-in radio show that brings a historical perspective to every day happenings. U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh discuss current events. Check it out.


www.civilrightslibrary.org - The Civil Rights Digital Library is one of the most comprehensive digital archives of the civil rights movement recently unveiled by The University of Georgia.

The Library aggregates and digitizes never-before-seen video news clips, audio files, images, FBI files, court documents and more from more than 75 institutions from across the nation. You can view some of the best here: http://crdl.usg.edu/voci/go/crdl/pf/abouter/9930.

Also, there is a special part of the site just for teachers.... Freedom on Film, which features lesson plans, worksheets and resources to facilitate learning the civil rights material. (http://crdl.usg.edu/voci/go/crdl/educatorResources/list)

next... the updates to the Antiques Roadshow website... they're going Web 2.0!!!
