Provenance Box and Folder List

Scope and Content

This collection consists of records compiled during the production of the video Lift Every Voice, edited in 2004 by Dr. Craig Lloyd.  In 2001, the Mayor's Commission on Diversity chose Dr. Lloyd to direct this project, which was inspired by Judith Grant's development of the Black History Trail.  Due to its importance to the history of Columbus, Georgia, all the public schools and libraries in Muscogee County hold a copy.
2003-2004                                                         2 boxes (1.3 l.f.)

Note: Additional information about Dr. Craig Lloyd may be found in our vertical files and MC 181.
