The Wisconsin Historical Society is one of the preeminent places in the US to research the American Civil Rights Movement. The materials in our collection range from the papers of large organizations to collections from individual activists. Combined with our library newspapers, library holdings, and database subscriptions, the Society allows for unparalleled access to primary and secondary sources from and about the movement.
