Black Freedom Struggle in the United States is a curated selection of primary sources for teaching and learning about the struggles and triumphs of Black Americans.
The Black Freedom Struggle website will include more than 2,000 documents curated around six crucial phases of the U.S. Black freedom struggle:
- Resistance to slavery by enslaved persons and the abolitionist movement of the 19th century
- The end of slavery during the Civil War and the Reconstruction Era
- The fight against Jim Crow segregation
- The New Deal and World War II
- The Civil Rights Movement and Black Power Movement from 1946-1975
- …and the contemporary Black experience since 1976.
This new open access website has been set up with the intention of supporting a wide range of students, independent researchers and anyone interested in learning more about the foundation of ongoing racial injustice in the US and the fights against it.
