Civil Rights and Social Justice Map
Revised and Relaunched
Village Preservation’s acclaimed Civil Rights and Social Justice Map has been revised and relaunched. Containing hundreds of sites connected to civil rights history found in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo, we’ve streamlined the format, added images and entries, and made it easier and more engaging than ever to learn how the course of history changed and the cause of social justice advanced in our neighborhoods.
You’ll find dozens of sites connected to civil rights movements for African Americans, LGBTQ+ people, women, and immigrants. You’ll also find critical locations in the battles against anti-Semitism, and for equality for Asian Americans and Hispanic/Latinx New Yorkers. Some are world-famous landmarks. Others you’ve walked past a hundred times, likely having no idea the crucial role they played in history.
