This collaborative digital project is assembling data and visualizations about dozens of social movements that have influenced American life and politics during the 20th century, including radical movements, labor movements, women's movements, many different civil rights movements, environmentalist movements, and more. . . . This project allows us to explore the relationships between social movements by bringing them together in time and space. It enables new understandings of how social movements interact and how they reproduce and change over time.
This site is just one portion of the larger Pacific Northwest Labor and Civil Rights Projects collection, also overseen by Professor Gregory. The ten projects "bring together more than one hundred video oral history interviews and several thousand photographs, documents, and digitized newspaper articles. Included are films, slide shows, and lesson plans for teachers. The projects also feature scores of historical essays about important issues, events, and people." In addition to "Mapping American Social Movements," other sections of particular interest include "America's Great Migrations" and "The Great Depression in Washington State."
