In addition to recognizing the significance of the African American Civil Rights movement, the resources (properties, facilities, and programs) chosen for inclusion in the African American Civil Rights Network offer a comprehensive overview of the people, places, and events associated with the civil rights movement in the United States. The preservation of the the buildings and landscapes relating to African American civil rights is just one aspect of the Network’s effort to convey the magnitude of the movement. The inclusion of programs and facilities in the Network is an opportunity to ensure that the history of the civil rights movement and the sacrifices made by those who fought for its cause are told and commemorated. You can learn how to become part of the Network on our Join the Network page.
