AFRICAN AMERICAN CIVIL RIGHTS NETWORK

John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park has been designated as a place on the African American Civil Rights Network .  The African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017, sponsored by Congressman William Lacy Clay (D-MO) and signed into law by President Donald J. Trump in January 2018, authorizes the National Park Service to coordinate and facilitate Federal and non-Federal activities to commemorate, honor and interpret “…the history of the African American Civil Rights movement; the significance of the civil rights movement as a crucial element in the evolution of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and the relevance of the African American Civil Rights movement in fostering the spirit of social justice and national reconciliation. “

The African American Civil Rights Network encompasses properties, facilities, and interpretive programs, all of which present a comprehensive narrative of the people, places, and events associated with African American Civil Rights movement in the United States. Some of these sites may be familiar, while others shed light on a lesser known figure or event consequential to the movement from local, regional, and national perspectives.
