National History Day 2018-2019: Triumph and Tragedy

Civil Rights

Racism has caused innumerable tragedies across time and continents. However, the civil rights movement of the mid-twentieth century resulted in great strides towards social and legal equality for African Americans in the United States. This page includes the collections of black women who fought against discrimination and hatred through education, literature, law, and political organizing. For more collections dealing with civil rights, see our subject guide on African American Women.
