W. W. Law speaking at a church meeting, circa 1960s.

Savannah civil rights activist W.W. Law passed away 14 years ago. He served as the president for the Savannah chapter of the NAACP from 1950 to 1976. Now the city of Savannah is archiving W.W. Law’s collection, which includes photographs, books, music, and letters.

We talk about Law’s life and legacy with Luciana Spracher, the Director of Library and Archives for the City of Savannah, and former Savannah mayor Edna Jackson, who knew Law personally.
