Portions of the site relating to the Civil Rights movement in the United States include, "JFK in History: Civil Rights Context in the Early 1960s;" "Leaders in the Struggle for Civil Rights" which gathers correspondence between several African American civil rights workers and the president; a list of civil rights accomplishments; the text and audio files for a civil rights speech the president gave in June 1963; an exhibit about the integration and subsequent riot at the University of Mississippi in the fall of 1962; and the White House diary which mentions visits by civil rights leaders.
