Title:Concerned White Citizens of Alabama scrapbook
Date:2002, 1945-1975

Instructional Web site recommended for grades nine through twelve featuring the documents related to the Concerned White Citizens of Alabama. In response to the strict segregation and racial violence that dogged Alabama's black community in the 1960s, 72 whites formed the Concerned White Citizens of Alabama. They promoted equality and marched in support of voting rights for African Americans. This scrapbook contains the group's constitution, a flyer from 1965, membership cards, and a statement of purpose that was used in a voting rights demonstration.

Includes a background essay, discussion questions, and alignments to teaching standards.

Major funding for this project is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute.

Grade range: 6-12.

The Teachers' Domain Civil Rights Collection is a collaborative production of WGBH Education Productions, the WGBH Media Library, and WGBH Interactive, in partnership with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and Washington University in St. Louis.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
