University of Nebraska-Lincoln: Nebraska-led project digitizes 1960s activism artifacts

University of Nebraska-Lincoln: Nebraska-led project digitizes 1960s activism artifacts. “Mention the 1960s, and a few things are top of mind — activism, war, counterculture, protests — and Roz Payne, a filmmaker, photographer and activist herself, was often in the center of it all. A member of the Newsreel Films collective, Payne chronicled the decade, following movements spanning the progressive spectrum, including Black Power, anti-war, gay rights, women’s liberation and Cuban Revolution among many others. Now, much of her work from the 1960s is available online, through the Roz Payne Sixties Archive, a project spearheaded by University of Nebraska–Lincoln historian Patrick Jones.
