Welcome to the NEH 1999 Civil Rights Movement Ongoing Contributions Web Site. The original site was created in the Summer of 1999. This site represents, we hope, an ongoing conversation in the discussion of civil rights in the United States.
Our purpose is to share teaching and research resources related to the Civil Rights Movement's history and consequences. We encourage further sharing and expansion of such resources for anyone interested in the Civil Rights movement, especially high school and university teachers.
