March On Milwaukee Project

The March on Milwaukee Civil Rights History Project supports understanding of the struggle for racial equality by helping users discover primary sources and other educational materials from the collections of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries and the Wisconsin Historical Society. The digital collection includes the selected papers of individuals representing a variety of positions on the civil rights issue, photographs, unedited footage from the WTMJ-TV news film archives, and oral history interviews capturing the recollections and perspectives of individuals who participated in the movement. The collection also includes contextual materials, such as brief explanations of relevant people, places, events, and organizations; a timeline; a bibliography of relevant published sources; and maps highlighting important locations.
