Audiovisual materials

Scope and Content Note

The audiovisual series contains audiotapes, tape transcriptions, and a small number of videotapes. The audiotapes consist primarily of interviews by various individuals with Louise Thompson Patterson. The largest number pertains to conversations between Patterson and Margaret Wilkerson of the University of California at Berkeley, on topics relating to the Memoirs Project (late 1980s). Of greatest interest are the interviews before the 1990s, when Patterson's memory of people and events was clearest. Some of the tapes have transcriptions, which are arranged chronologically in the tape transcriptions subseries. The videotapes consist of interviews with Patterson, Patterson's 93rd birthday party (1994), and the presentation of the Fannie Lou Hamer Award to Louise Thompson Patterson in 1991.
