The establishment of this new center and addition of Rep. Clyburn’s Congressional papers will build on USC’s existing, robust collection of papers from noted civil rights leaders, including Joseph A. De Laine, John Bolt Culbertson, I. DeQuincey Newman and Modjeska Monteith Simkins. These collections are filled with first-person accounts of courage and sacrifice that bring the story of South Carolina’s civil rights struggle to life. Here, the collections will be made available to USC student and faculty researchers and scholars from around the world, enhancing understanding of civil rights issues and history far beyond the Palmetto State’s borders.
