In addition to large donations from prominent people, the Civil Rights Heritage Center has acquired materials of local significance. There are not enough materials in each of these donations to justify creation of its own sub-collection, therefore, they are included together here. Materials include photographs, programs, booklets, plaques, correspondence, a property title, a scrapbook, a blueprint, and a board game; they range in date from 1922-2010. The material is arranged in order of donation, when that information is known. Donation forms (e.g. Deed of Gifts) are included when we have them. Some items are too large to fit in a standard bankers box. These are stored in a flat box stored in Archives Room #204A -- in the lower shelving unit at the east end of the room

The Indiana University South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center (CRHC) was formed in 2000. Its mission is "to preserve the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement and the history of the racial struggles and extraordinary achievements of local citizens." First housed in IU South Bend's Wiekamp Hall, CRHC student staff and volunteers conducted research on the African American civil rights experience in and around South Bend, Indiana. They began an extensive Oral History collection, produced several published thesis projects, and identified and acquired important archival materials of several prominent people, including Helen Pope (after whom a scholarship at IU South Bend is named), Jesse Dickinson (African American Indiana state legislator), Dr. Bernard Streets (one of the first African American dentists), and others. Perhaps the defining moment was re-opening the former Engman Natatorium, a once segregated swimming pool on the west side of South Bend. Beginning circa 2005, the CRHC led ... Read More

The Indiana University South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center LGBTQ Collection contains materials relating to the experience of people in and around South Bend, Indiana, who describe their sexual and/or gender identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, or queer, as well as people who consider themselves allies to the LGBTQ rights cause. South Bend and its neighboring cities in north central Indiana and south central Michigan, like many other cities in the United States during the second half of the 20th century and first quarter of the 21st, has experienced a radical transformation in attitudes towards the LGBTQ community. For much of the 20th century, South Bend's LGBTQ community was closed and closeted. With a stronger Catholic and Christian culture than some cities (as evidenced by such institutions as the predominantly Catholic University of Notre Dame as well as significant Polish and Eastern European immigrant communities), South Bend had been described as a less ...
