The Portal to Texas History: The Community Bulletin 1967-1968 (Abilene, Tx)

The Portal to Texas History includes several digital collections that highlight the heritage of African Americans in Texas.  One such collection originates from the Abilene Public Library and features a digital collection of the Community Bulletin. The Community Bulletin was a weekly newspaper that featured information about politics, education, the economy, church and community events happening in the Abilene area. The collection comprises issues published from August 19, 1967 to March 2, 1968. An exploration of this collection provides a small town perspective on the issues that animated the civil rights movement.
