The Wisconsin Historical Society owns one of the nation's richest archives on the civil rights movement: tens of thousands of letters, diaries, meeting minutes, phone logs, internal memos, photographs, press releases, audio tapes and other primary sources. For half a century every serious researcher on the civil rights movement has used the Society archives. Join historian Michael Edmonds to discover why this national treasure is in Wisconsin rather than Washington, D.C.
