Civil Rights Mediation Oral History Project

The excellent archive of interviews with civil rights mediators developed by Heidi Burgess and Richard Salem now has its own website domain at  At the site you can find coded audio interviews with 19 mediators who worked for the Community Relations Service to mediate race-related conflicts in communities across America. What makes the site especially useful is the time the project staff have taken to code and organize topical “chunks” of the interview audio and transcripts. This enables the user to see and listen to excerpts of all the interviews pertaining to a certain topic, such as meeting dynamics for instance. The full topics list is available for browsing. Definately a useful tool for conflict studies instructors.
