Black Freedom Struggle in the 20th Century (ProQuest)

ProQuest History Vault: Civil Rights and the Black Freedom Struggle

The UCF Libraries would like to announce the acquisition of the following collections in ProQuest’s Black Freedom Struggle in the 20th Century database: Federal Government Records & Supplement; and Organizational Records and Personal Papers, Parts 1 and 2.

The focus of the Federal Government Records & Supplements modules is on the political side of the freedom movement, the role of civil rights organizations in pushing for civil rights legislation, and the interaction between African Americans and the federal government in the 20th century. Major collections include the FBI Files and records from the Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Reagan administrations, detailing the interaction between civil rights leaders and organizations and the highest levels of the federal government.

The Organizational Records and Personal Papers parts 1 and 2 bring a new perspective to the Black Freedom Struggle via the records of major civil rights organizations and personal papers of leaders and observers of the 20th century Black freedom struggle.

UCF community members can access this database at https://guides.ucf.edu/database/BlackFreedom

Construction of a door to the Automated Retrieval Center has begun at the back of the Knowledge Commons on the 2md (main) floor.
To seek a quieter environment, library classrooms 235A and 235C are open for study. These are located off Infusion, the café area. Areas in the front of the building (Reflecting Pond side), on 3rd and 4th floor may be out of the noisy area.
