The Historic New Orleans Collection

As part of the NOLA Resistance project, The Historic New Orleans Collection has recorded conversations with several former members of the Congress of Racial Equality. New Orleans CORE became the center of the civil rights movement here, driven by the leadership of a few visionary organizers. Dave Dennis was one of those people, though his relationship with the movement began a bit unconventionally.
