This website is an interactive venture dedicated to gathering and sharing stories, images, and creative work (songs, quilts, journal entries, etc.) from the Civil Rights era in Fayette County, Tennessee. Though we cannot begin to tell (or even find) every individual's story from this era, we want to include a variety of perspectives here; this site provides a venue in which Fayette County residents can describe their memories of these events. Sponsored by the Benjamin L. Hooks Institute at the University of Memphis, this website is being developed by faculty and students at Fayette-Ware High School, Iowa State University, and the University of Memphis.
