Greetings fellow Classroom 2.0'ers. I want to send out a request, particularly to members in the southern states of USA. (Moderators, if this is misplaced, please re-direct me.) In a couple of weeks I am making a journey through Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina to visit some sites with historical significance to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950's-1960's. I will be blogging about this trip. (http://www.learnwithmenow.wordpress.com) I am very interested in interviewing people who participated in marches, sit-ins, voter registration drives, and the like while I on this trip. I will be stopping in Memphis, Birmingham, Selma, Montgomery, Atlanta, Raleigh, and Washington DC. I am aware of the Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement website, and I am working through that to try to make contacts. However, that site is not updated regularly, so I do not have confidence that I will find people to interview. Another thing I would be interested in doing is visiting classrooms in these cities to have students there tell me their families' stories. Can anyone in Classroom 2.0 help me with these connections? 

Thank you,

James
