The Digitizing of ’34 documentary was created by staff at Georgia State University Library to share information about work on a National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) grant received in 2015. The grant funding provided professional digitization and transcription services for interviews created for The Uprising of ’34 (1995), a feature-length documentary that tells the story of the general textile strike across the south in the same year. While the interview was one-and-a-half hours in length, the interviews created for the documentary consist of over 200 hours of footage. The short documentary, an homage to the original documentary, provides information on the background of the strikes, difficulties accessing the collection, the success of the grant project, and outreach to communities where the strikes took place in 1934. A companion history of the collection provides further explanation of the collection and grant.
