While it might be difficult to locate the exact ânerve centerâ of the American civil rights movement, Atlanta might be one of the top contenders, both due to the fact that it was the home of many grassroots civil rights organizations and the many noted protests and actions that took place during that time. Developed by the Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education (ARCHE), this site pays homage to Atlantaâs role in the movement by offering a timeline of key events in the struggle, along with a searchable inventory of special collections, which contains materials from ARCHEâs member institutions, such as the Atlanta History Center. The first stop for visitors should be the timeline of events that occurred in Atlanta from 1940 to 1970. Along with well-written explanatory essays, each section contains information about various primary and secondary resources used to craft each essay. As previously mentioned, scholars and others will also appreciate the search engine on the site, which effectively looks across all of the member institutionâs special collections by name, keyword, or phrase.
