520    Champions of Civil and Human Rights in South Carolina is a
       five-volume anthology spanning the decades from 1930 to 
       1980 with oral history interviews of key activists and 
       leaders of the civil rights movement in South Carolina. 
       Editor Marvin Ira Lare introduces more than one hundred 
       civil rights leaders from South Carolina who tell their 
       own stories in their own words to reveal and chronicle a 
       massive revolution in American society in a deeply 
       personal and gripping way. This ambitious project of the 
       University of South Carolina's Institute for Public 
       Service and Policy Research was funded in part by the 
       South Carolina Bar Foundation, the Southern Bell 
       Corporation, and South Carolina Humanities. The five 
       volumes serve as a collective memoir featuring original 
       oral history interviews with significant figures in the 
       civil rights movement of the Palmetto State, a survey of 
       archived interviews, a variety of published and 
       unpublished narratives, and illuminating black-and-white 
       photographs. Every page opens doors to new historical 
       evidence and to new insights regarding the people, places,
       and events of the civil and human rights struggle in South
       Carolina. Volume 1, Dawn of the Movement Era, 1955-1967, 
       begins with the landmark 1954 Supreme Court ruling on 
       Brown v. Board of Education in which the Court declared 
       unconstitutional state laws establishing racially 
       segregated public schools. The ruling prompted strong 
       reactions throughout the nation. In South Carolina white 
       resistance prompted boycotts of merchants by the local 
       NAACP and some of the earliest mass movement protests in 
       the United States. This collection features oral histories
       from famous leaders U.S. Congressman James E. Clyburn, 
       Septima Poinsette Clark, and I. DeQuincy Newman, as well 
       as small-town citizens, pastors, and students, all sharing
       their experiences, motivations, hopes and fears, and how 
       they see the struggle today.
