Fighting for Justice - New York Voices of the Civil Rights Movement

About Fighting for Justice

New York City played a prominent role in the National Civil Rights struggle. This site illustrates that role through various films, photo galleries, reports and other materials.  The short films that comprise Fighting for Justice: New York Voices of the Civil Rights Movement were produced in cooperation with NYC Media.  

At present, this site features three heroes of the fight for justice - Esther Cooper Jackson, Clifford Alexander, Jr. and Elsie Richardson. This site will serve as an ongoing repository of additional films and resources, and updates will be made as available.
