About This Guide

This research guide is an introduction to the materials available at the University of Minnesota Law Library and on the Internet about civil rights in the United States. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “civil right” as “the individual rights of personal liberty guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and by the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 19th amendments, as well as by legislation such as the Voting Rights Act. Civil rights include especially the right to vote, the right of due process, and the right of equal protection under the law.”
