There are many resources outside of Archives and Special Collections for educators, researchers, and community activist/scholars. Using the subpages on the left, explore Interactive Maps that detail the history of racism within city planning and zoning, redlining within Louisville, and the city's Civil Rights history. Community Resources is an extensive list of local organizations that work to empower and improve life for Louisville's diverse citizens. UofL Resources will guide you to on-campus organizations and committees that work towards racial and social justice, as well as minority affinity groups.
