The purpose of the Publishing the Long Civil Rights Movement website is to share information, resources, and research on the long civil rights movement.

By featuring the long civil rights movement, we seek to broaden and deepen the traditional understanding of the civil rights movement as a 1960s-era phenomenon. In this longer view, the movement’s timeline encompasses its origins and its aftermath, including contemporary controversies such as school resegregation, environmental and economic justice, related efforts for social justice such as the women’s and gay rights movements, and even the forces arrayed against these movements.

The Publishing the Long Civil Rights Movement website is hosted by the Special Collections Library of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and managed by the staff of the Carolina Digital Library and Archive (CDLA).
