For a PBS documentary commemorating the 50th anniversary of the
Freedom Rides, I am seeking radio news coverage of the events, either
as they happened (May-July, 1961) or as part of "year-ender"
broadcasts. Especially important are CBS Howard K Smith reports from
Birmingham AL on May 14-15 and other news reports on those days. Major
events of interest occurred in Alabama and Mississippi.
I would love to hear about any collections or collectors that could
make such audio available.
