StoryCorps, the NPR oral history project, has now produced an animated version of Rev. James Seawood's account of the arrival of school desegregation in Sheridan, Ark. It's getting wide attention on Facebook.

Seawood first told his story in 2009.

That telling prompted an addition to the historical record by a Sheridan resident who observed the same events from the white side of town. That in turn, produced some comments by readers on oral history and race.
