The Library of Congress is working with AARP to collect stories of people who were involved in the Civil Rights Movement. If you or a family member was involved in some way, even if it was simply through attending demonstrations, writing letters, or doing something else small but meaningful, please visit http://www.aarp.org/tellastory to share your story. The stories will be used as part of the Library of Congress' Voices of Civil Rights project (http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/civilrights/).
Activism is an important, yet overlooked part of so many family histories. It would be great if more people got involved with passing on their passions or those of their ancestors.
