What Happened to the Civil Rights Movement?

A four-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university faculty members on the civil rights movement in the United States.

"What Happened to the Civil Rights Movement?" is organized around new and recent scholarship on the history of the African American-based struggles for citizenship and justice. The program aims to work with college teachers in identifying major themes, questions, and approaches to the history of the Civil Rights Movement as well as the broader struggles that moved to the forefront in the late 1960s – around urban conditions, poverty criminal justice, access to housing, and school segregation – consequences of segregation and racial discrimination beyond the Jim Crow South. A major goal of the institute is to work collaboratively in developing curriculum and teaching strategies for incorporating this history into American history courses and related areas of instruction.
