Study Black activism through the lens of New York, in New York


New York City has been a center of organization of African American social and political movements throughout much of American history—abolitionism in the 18th and 19th centuries; a destination for tens of thousands of migrants from the South and  the Caribbean in the early twentieth century; anti-lynching, housing rights, and educational provision protest during the Civil Rights movement; and a center of political organization for feminist and queer people of color over the past few decades. Activists, high school and college instructors, graduate students, writers and journalists, museum and archive professionals, and independent scholars and researchers are welcome to apply.
