History Vault (NAACP Papers, Slavery and the Law)
The collection — nearly 2 million pages of internal memos, legal briefings and direct
action summaries from national, legal and branch offices throughout the country —
charts NAACP's work and delivers a first-hand view into crucial issues: lynching,
school desegregation, and discrimination in the military, the criminal justice system,
employment, and housing, among others.
Race, slavery, and free blacks petitions to southern legislatures and southern county courts. The Slavery and the Law collection provides invaluable insight to scholars, students, and general readers of the humanities into testimony on a broad range of subjects by a variety of southerners—black and white, slave and free, slaveholder and non-slaveholder, man and woman.
