University of Louisville Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research (exhibit co-curators and writers)

The Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research was founded in 2006 to honor the work and legacy of longtime racial justice organizer, educator and journalist Anne Braden. In bridging the gap between academic research and community activism for racial and social justice, the Institute seeks to advance public understanding of the U.S. civil rights movement, both its powerful history and its unfinished business.
