Overview

Over 60,000 pages of original records on microfilm providing a unique insight into the origins and development of the American civil rights movement.

Founded in the early 1940s by a small interracial group of student activists from the University of Chicago, the Congress of Racial Equality grew both in manpower and influence to play a dominant role in the civil rights revolt of the 1960s. CORE's key position in the struggle for civil rights in America makes its records a major research resource, invaluable not only to social and political historians but to all researchers confronting the issue of race relations in their work.
