FBI Vault

The FOIA FBI files on Civil Rights add an interesting primary source to supplement texts. I taught them in an African American Literature course last spring, and students were astonished by them.

They are available here:

The online Martin Luther King files were incomplete, but they are available on microfilm at some libraries; the Malcolm X files and the Betty Shabazz files were very good. There are several categories spanning all different subjects.
