“ProQuest’s Black Freedom Struggle website provides a rich array of source material on African American efforts to secure civil and human rights – from slavery to the present – allowing students to pursue exciting avenues of inquiry, and enabling teachers to teach African American history accurately and effectively. It’s an incredible collection, one I’m eager to use in classroom instruction and for students to mine for research projects.” ~Dr. Hasan Kwame Jeffries, Associate Professor of History at the Ohio State University

Containing hearings and committee prints, legislative histories on the landmark legislation, CRS and GAO reports, briefs from major Supreme Court cases, and publications from the Commission on Civil Rights, this database allows users to educate themselves on the ways our civil rights have been strengthened and expanded over time, as well as how these legal protections can go further still.
