Columbia College Chicago students conducted these oral histories during the Spring 2015 semester for the course, Oral History: The Art of the Interview in the Humanities, History & Social Sciences department.

This Oral History Project was completed in collaboration with the Council of Religious Leaders of Metropolitan Chicago to record and preserve the eyewitness histories of individuals who participated in the historic events of the year 1968 in Chicago. By conducting these oral histories, students explored the role of religious leadership and activism in 1968 and documented the responses to a series of crises in order to gain a deeper understanding of the era.
