Anne Braden Institute

The Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research was founded in 2006 to honor the work and legacy of Anne Braden.

Braden was a Louisville journalist, organizer, and educator who was among the earliest and most dedicated white allies of the southern civil rights movement. Martin Luther King praised Braden’s extraordinary integrity in his famous “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” in 1963.

The Institute works to bridge the gap between academic research and community activism for racial and social justice.
