A new initiative from the National Endowment for the Humanities will provide schools and communities with free access to documentaries that trace the history of the civil rights movement, from the first seeds of change that sprouted in the 1820s to the 1967 Supreme Court decision that overturned the ban on interracial marriage.

The launch of a website comes in the wake of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

The featured documentaries include "The Abolitionists," "Slavery by Another Name," "The Loving Story," and "Freedom Riders."
