Skip introduction & notes

As explained in About the Civil Rights Movement Archive, this website was created to document and preserve the history of the Southern Freedom Movement — meaning the Civil Rights Movement as it occurred in the South. We initially chose not to cover the northern wing of the Movement because few of us in Bay Area Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement had much direct experience in the North and because, with one exception, we did not have any significant collection of northern materials to begin with. However, some collections of southern material also contain northern documents which in 2020 we decided to begin including here. For more on the northern wing, see Northern Wing of the Civil Rights Movement).

 — Bruce Hartford, Webspinner

Notes on language:

  1. As was the common usage by Freedom Movement activists in the 1960s, this page uses the words "North" and "Northern" to denote the movement as it existed outside of the South.

  2. In the 1960s, social-justice activists commonly used the word "ghetto" for Afro-American neighborhoods — particularly in the urban north — as a way of calling attention to involuntary residential segregation, economic exploitation, systemic poverty, and police repression. In some contexts, "ghetto" was also a term of defiant community pride. Today, some folks now use "ghetto" as a disparaging pejorative, as in "that's so ghetto." On this site we use "ghetto" as it was used in the 1960s.
