BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Today, Louisiana Public Broadcasting and the Secretary of State's Office unveiled its new Digital Media Archives.
More than 1,500 clips are on display, including interviews with civil rights pioneers, political figures, war heroes, artists and more.
"We can learn from our past, at least we should learn from our past," says Secretary of State Tom Schedler. "I think that's the biggest benefit here, you can read about something, but seeing it on video is a vastly different experience."
Select videos will even be available for downloading. The Louisiana Digital Media Archive is available at http://www.ladigitalmedia.org.
