Yearbook of Congress of Racial Equality Actions 1942-1970

Founded in 1942 by an interracial group of University of Chicago students, CORE pioneered key tactics of the modern civil rights movement, using sit-ins and other forms of civil disobedience to challenge segregation. Winning victories in northern cities in the 1940s and 1950s, CORE became active in the South with the lunch counter sit-ins of 1960. The following year CORE organized "Freedom Rides," sending black and white students south to disrupt segregated interstate bus service. Drawing much of its membership from college campuses, CORE kept up civil disobedience campaigns in the North as well as the South.

Here is a chronological database of CORE events as reported in several CORE publications and the New York Times. Ari Hermida researched the CORE-lator and other organization publications.The New York Times articles are from the database developed for Dynamics of Collective Action in the U.S, 1960-1995.
