The African American Civil Rights Network is a National Park Service program that coordinates and facilitates Federal and non-Federal activities to commemorate, honor and interpret “…the history of the African American Civil Rights movement and histories; the significance of the civil rights movement as a crucial element in the evolution of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and the relevance of the African American Civil Rights movement in fostering the spirit of social justice and national reconciliation.
The African American Civil Rights Network encompasses properties, facilities, and interpretive programs, all of which present a comprehensive narrative of the people, places, and events associated with the African American Civil Rights movement in the United States. Some of these sites may be familiar, while others shed light on a lesser-known figure or event consequential to the movement from local, regional, and national perspectives.
The Network is currently accepting applications for this cycle until January 18th, 2024. Please see the announcement below to find out how to join the network.
