WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Senate unanimously passed U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown’s (D-OH) bipartisan bill to create a national network of historic sites, stories, research facilities and educational programs connected to the African American Civil Rights Movement.

 

The bill, which passed congress last month, now heads to President Trump’s desk to be signed into law.

 

A Cleveland Democrat, Brown introduced the bill last year with Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and U.S. Reps. Lacy Clay (D-MO-1) and Jason Smith (R-MO-8).

 

The African American Civil Rights Network Act will also establish a National Park Service (NPS) program to educate the public, and provide technical assistance for documenting, preserving and interpreting the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

 

“By working with our National Park Service to honor the key sites and moments of the Civil Rights Movement, we can help preserve the legacy and struggle of those who risked their lives to demand full and equal participation in our democracy,said Brown. “It’s important to learn from their stories, and this network is one small way we can help educate the next generation.

 

The African American Civil Rights Network would initially look to include historic sites identified by the NPS’ Civil Rights Initiative like Mason Temple in Memphis, TN, where King delivered his “Mountaintop” speech the day before his assassination.

 

Sen Brown said that there is also the opportunity for additional sites to be added like Miami University’s Western Campus in Oxford, OH, where students trained to register African American voters in Mississippi during Freedom Summer.


The Civil Rights Movement took steam in the late 1950s and spanned more than two decades. It was a contentious period of vigorous debate, protests and reprisal against African-Americans and their supporters that led to public policy changes through legislation and precedent setting supreme court rulings relative to numerous venues, including housing, transportation, education and voting rights.

 

Among the accomplishments are the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Brown vs. Board of Education, and now defunct desegregation court orders in public school districts across the nation that followed federal court findings of racial discrimination against Black children and their families in the nation's public schools.

 

Reed v Rhodes, the federal district court decision in 1976, brought about desegregation in Cleveland's public schools, and prompted crosstown busing, one of 12 remedial orders mandated by the court under the late Federal District Court judge Frank J. Battisti to remedy the past vestiges of racial discrimination to the extend practicable.


African-Americans who have made contributions to Civil Rights in America are the cornerstone of the Civil Rights Movement.

 

They include the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Medgar Evers, Malcom X, Rosa Parks, and Fannie Lou Hamer.

 

Cleveland is central to the Civil Rights Movement that brought about public policy changes for the betterment of its Black community, and following the Hough Riots of 1966 and 'The Glenville Shootout of 1968."

 

Cleveland voters elected Carl B. Stokes as the first Black mayor of a major American city in 1967, his brother and only sibling, Louis Stokes, the first Black member of congress from Ohio.

 

Brown's bill is supported by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

 

“We applaud Sens. Brown and Alexander on passage of the African-American Civil Rights Network Act,” said Thomas J. Cassidy, vice president for government relations and policy for the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

 

“By linking the historic sites, routes, corridors, and regions that defined the struggle for African-American equality, this bill will deepen our understanding of the relationships between the people and places of the modern Civil Rights movement, and help us to better appreciate its context and complexity," Cassidy said. "Creating programming that ties together sites, activities, and research on Civil Rights will produce a richer and more complete picture of a critical time in our nation’s history.”
