DOVE Digital Collection 

Creator Desegregation of Virginia Education (DOVE) Project
Description The DOVE Collection contains materials dated mainly from the early 1950s through the 1960s and 70s. Specific regions represented in the collection are the City of Norfolk, Prince Edward County, Southside Virginia, Charlottesville and the Eastern Shore of Virginia. During a series of tours conducted throughout the state in 2012 and 2013 entitled ‘School Desegregation: Learn, Preserve and Empower,’ nearly 100 oral histories were conducted to allow citizens to talk about their experiences with school desegregation. Photographs, documents, newspaper clippings and other items were also collected at this time and at other times during the DOVE project. Additional material will be added in the future.
