Teams of students have obtained, under the Freedom of Information Act, some 150,000 pages of heretofore confidential FBI investigative reports from field agents gathered at the time which are in possession of the FBI or stored at the National Archives. Nearly 150,000 searchable pages of information from those reports are presented here. More are added every six months. In addition, stories written by the student team, lists of cases and links to other projects are included.
Since 2010, some two dozen Manship School undergraduate and graduate students have focused on a dozen hate murders from the 1960s that were part of an FBI Cold Case Initiative to re-examine 112 cases from the Civil Rights-era in which mostly African Americans have died or disappeared through violent Ku Klux Klan activity.
