“‘A Shaky Truce’: Starkville Civil Rights Struggles, 1960-1980” re-tells the story of American civil rights activism from the perspective of Starkville, Mississippi, using oral history interviews with residents who remember how court imposed desegregation forced the town confront its racial inequities. Photos, newspapers, correspondences, and materials from the Mississippi State University Libraries’ archives and interviewees’ personal collections contextualize the interviews.
