NCpedia has been at work developing “curated” collections to bring together resources for a number of broad topical areas.  Now that the site has more than 7,000 articles, these collections are designed to help researchers find more useful articles, explore a range of subtopics within broader categories, and to connect content that helps tell aspects of the state’s history and stories.

This week we added a collection for the Civil Rights Movement in North Carolina.

The collection presents several topical areas with links to related articles and search results in the NCpedia collection. Topics cover many focal points for the history of the Civil Rights movement in the state, including African American, Native American, and Women’s history.  And the collection also includes a listing of more than 20 lesson plans from the NC Civic Education Consortium, with links to the individual activity guides.

Broad categories included in the Civil Rights collection:
