The Civil Rights Movement

The civil rights movement began as an effort by African Americans and their supporters in the mid-twentieth century to achieve equal rights for all, including equal opportunity in employment, housing, education, the right to vote and the right to be free of racial discrimination. Over the decades this movement for equality has grown to include other races and nationalities and gender rights for those who have also been oppressed in our country. This semester the Government Information department is displaying documents from an array of government departments that focus on the history of this movement and how the government has researched and addressed these issues over the decades. The display is located on the northwest side of the Gearhart Reading Room and all documents displayed are available for check out.
