Social Change Collections Overview: About

An overview of archival materials found in the Social Change collecting area.


The Social Change Collections document select social movements, primarily in Georgia. Materials in the collections describe activism related to the environment, education, and the death penalty; community-building efforts and civic engagement in Atlanta neighborhoods; and the city's economic and social development from the mid-20th century to the present. Among the materials is an extensive collection of oral histories, including the Georgia Government Documentation Project, which details the state’s political and social history and includes interviews with former governors, legislators, political activists, civil rights leaders, media figures, lawyers, judges, and social crusaders.
