Olivia Rorie Olivia Rorie: A Mother to All

Olivia Rorie was a community organizer in Albany in the 1950's and 60's. This interactive photography exhibit is part of Advocate, Mothers, Deacons and Brothers: Stories from the Civil Rights Movement in Albany New York, that is featured on the site Close to This Moment: The Photography of Bob Paley.

I created the Flash for Olivia Rorie: A Mother to All. I also designed the soundtracks and edited the oral history audio for the Rorie project and two other sections of the Civil Rights exhibit: Uphill in a Downpour: Peter Pryor's Story and The Wallace Rally. For the Wallace Rally, I tried to create a feeling that the listener was walking through the crowds.
