Duke University Library to Get Documents on Hate Groups
From the AP:
A Duke University library will get a collection of materials documenting extremist and hate groups compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The collection from the law center’s Intelligence Project is going to the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke.
The collection includes nearly 90 boxes of periodicals, pamphlets, flyers and other documents intended for distribution to group members and recruits over the past 30 years.
At the Rubenstein Library, the collection will allow researchers to examine the histories of hate groups and efforts to monitor and infiltrate them adding to the Library’s Human Rights Archive, its rich collections for social movements in the United States, and its large existing collection of materials documenting the Ku Klux Klan from the 1860s to the present day.
The SPLC collection includes materials on many types of extremist groups such as neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, white nationalists, neo-Confederates, racist skinheads, black separatists, border vigilantes and others.
