Civil Rights Movement Veterans Website
If you were a Movement veteran active with CORE, NAACP, SCLC, SNCC,
SCEF, SSOC, Delta Ministry, Deacons for Defense, a local Movement
organization, or some other group active in the Southern Freedom
Movement, we ask you to contribute yourself. Please add your name,
history, and testimony to the Civil Rights Movement Veterans Roll Call.
And if the spirit moves, add a tribute for one who has moved on.
Veterans of the Southern Freedom Movement who have listed themselves on
the Veterans Roll Call are encouraged to submit materials for posting on
this site. Please email your stories, commentaries, poems, tributes,
photographs and so on, to email@example.com. We also welcome the
submission of photos, documents, and tributes from people who are not
Movement veterans. We welcome submissions under the following
- To be listed in the Roll Call, you must be a Movement veteran.
- We're flexible about length, but we can't publish books or entire
pamphlets. As a general rule of thumb, 10 pages is normally about the
maximum except in special circumstances.
- We cannot pay you anything to use your materials. We are a non-
commercial educational site, all of our labor is donated, all expenses
are paid out of our own pockets. We have no outside funding of any kind.
- Use of Materials. By submitting materials to us, you grant us
a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual license, without payment. And with
the right to sublicense (to other Site users and people and entities who
help to administer or maintain the Site), to view, post, copy,
reproduce, modify, distribute, publicly display and otherwise use your
submitted materials on our website. "Non-exclusive" means that you
retain rights to the work you send us, and you can use that work
elsewhere, however you wish.
- Use of your name. By adding your name to the Roll Call and
otherwise submitting to us materials that identify you, you grant us the
non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual right, without payment but with the

- Our site is for documenting what we did and experienced in the
Southern Freedom Movement, what it meant to us, what we learned from it,
and how we view it today. We want our site to contribute to rebuilding
the beloved community that we once shared. Therefore, personal attacks
on named individuals, or carrying on old vendettas, is not appropriate.

as attachments in JPG format or good quality reproductions on paper.

attachments. Unfortunately, we cannot use documents that are in JPG
