This digital vault contains declassified documents on FBI Counterintelligence Program (COINTELPRO) activities. Launched in 1956, COINTELPRO initially sought to disrupt Communist Party activities in the United States. In the 1960s, the program expanded to groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, the Socialist Workers Party, and the Black Panther Party.  

All COINTELPRO operations were ended in 1971 amid revelations of illegal operations. The program is largely criticized in the African American community for having dismantled progressive movements designed to changed racist structures in America.
