BROWSE/SEARCH the Collection

 

The DOVE project was created to identify, locate, catalog and encourage the preservation of records that document Virginia’s school desegregation process of schools, grades K-12 and higher education institutions from the 1940s to 1980s. There is a catalog of these materials on the DOVE Website.

 

From 2011-12, a traveling exhibit entitled "School Desegregation: Learn, Preserve and Empower" was sponsored by the DOVE project. Nearly 100 oral history interviews were conducted and are contained in this digital collection. Additional documents and photographs collected during the DOVE traveling exhibit are also included here. Among the regions represented in the collection are the City of Norfolk, Prince Edward County, Southside Virginia, Charlottesville and the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
