About This Website The web presence of the Queens College Civil Rights Archive showcases digitized items and from our collections and online exhibits built by Special Collections fellows and staff. The website is constantly growing, but only represents a small sample of the materials held in the archive.
Queens College Civil Rights Archive The Queens College Civil Rights Archive collects published and unpublished works relating to civil rights activities such as personal papers, community materials, organizational records, non-print materials, and artifacts. It also conducts oral histories to supplement its collections. The archive is particularly strong in documenting the civil rights work by Queens College students during the early 1960s. The Civil Rights Archive is an active participant in its communities, working with students and alumni of Queens College, local schools, and the city at large.
