Documented Rights is a moving chronicle of the history of civil rights in America. This online exhibit from The National Archives includes photos, legal briefs, letters, pamphlets, and a host of other documents that detail not only the struggles of oppressed groups for equal rights, but also the ferocity with which many white men (and women) bucked against progress.
Examining objectively presented evidence of the underlying racial fear still present in America today is a sobering experience, to say the least. It doesn't matter what your politics are, Documented Rights deserves your attention.
