"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality." Excerpts from Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1964).
Some resources are publicly available online. Others are available through database subscriptions from local libraries. The Austin American-Statesman and JSTOR databases, for instance, are available at Austin Community College Libraries and at the Austin Public Library. For remote access, a library card or ACCeID is required.
Many local libraries also provide access to research databases through the TexShare databases. Community members may use Austin Community College libraries as guests. Please see FAQs for ACC Library Guests and Visitors for more information.
Other resources may require a visit to historical societies or other repositories for more information. As much as possible, the committee has tried to provide free online access to information resources collected.
