Date:1964 Aug.

Lloyd Barbee poses in front of the Wisconsin State Capitol.

Lloyd Barbee was one of the most prominent figures in the Milwaukee civil rights movement during the 1960s. In 1962, Barbee started his own law firm and became involved in the dispute over school segregation. He presided over a number of civil rights organizations including the Madison NAACP and also served in the Wisconsin State Assembly where he introduced the State Fair Housing bill. Barbee was a longtime advocate of total school integration, leading the struggle to desegregate Milwaukee public schools.

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.
