Civil Rights Movement, Women: Home


The intentions of this guide are to provide the researcher with helpful tips, and suggested print and electronic resources about women involved in the Civil Rights movement in the United States.

The guide is divided into eight different categories. Each is designed to give the researcher ideas on how to track down material relating to the African American experience. The first is a clip on the life of Ella Baker. For a more detail film on her life, see the film, Fundi: The Story of Ella Baker.
