Tougaloo College will be featured as a part of a documentary series entitled, Voices of the Civil Rights Movement, which is a multimedia collaboration of Comcast NBCUniversal and the Equal Justice Initiative. This documentary seeks to honor the legacy and impact of the men and women who championed racial equality in the United States.
