The collection dates between 1923 and 2010, with the bulk of the material dating from the 1960s through the 1970s. The bulk of the collection consists of serials published in the US, with some titles published in Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Poland, Germany, and China. Large runs of publications include Black Panther Community News and the American Civil Liberties Union's  Civil Liberties. Topics include the civil rights movement in the US in the 1960s, issues surrounding civil liberties for racial and religious minorities in the US and Europe in the mid to late 20th century, and the work of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in these areas. The majority of serials in this collection focus on civil rights for African Americans in the US with serials from the ACLU, the Black Panthers, and the Southern Poverty Law Center on this issue.
