This book is a collection of stirring historic papers, memoirs, personal effects, and photographs brought to life in a unique, three-dimensional, interactive format. Lest We Forget chronicles the unyielding strength of a people who refused to be broken.

Throughout the twentieth century, African Americans would trouble the waters of America—agitating, challenging, and defying the status quo. We Shall Not Be Moved chronicles the struggles and triumphs of African Americans leading up to and during the Civil Rights Movement.
