So that they will have equal rights as the whites in front of the laws on court, and end the Jim Crow laws. Although this didn’t all happen at once, but it was starting to progress. The Great Migration happened through world war one, a lot of blacks moved to the northern part, since there are more jobs available. However they still worked with the same jobs they got in the south, since they are not well educated or skilled. More and more poor blacks gathered together in the north, and the communities they lived in has a high crime rate.
Du Bois lives in a world in which a color line divides all life into two parts. One part is enjoying a lot of special treatment, money, and other advantages in life and white, and it uses for selfish reasons other part that is held back and black. Du Bois explains that although Mr. Washington was very famous and important and successful man, his personality was not always very pleasant. Mr. Washington was responsible for developing an industrial education, giving in to demands to calm everyone down of the South, Du Bois respectfully speak of Mr. Washington's problems and mistakes of his career and how although he supported the people of color, he also at one time went against them. While DuBoise agrees that Washington was a leader in the African American community, he points out that Washington had both good and bad qualities about him.
One of our most famous, or infamous, wars was centered around the enslavement of a whole race because white people in the South needed cheap labor and saw themselves as racially superior. However, after the war I have to admit that the Government at least tried with the Reconstruction Amendments. The 15th amendment gave the right to vote to African-American males which was a huge step in the right direction for change. This new amendment definitely benefited the black community considering there was a rise of African-American officeholders during the Reconstruction Era (Foner,
The Great Migration was the movement of 6 million African-Americans out of the rural Southern United States to the urban Northeast, Midwest and west. How did it have an effect on there families? And how did it change their lives for the better? African Americans faced many trials from the great migration they were forced to move from their homes, they moved from the south to other parts of the country, in 1900s the had set off looking for jobs some we 're looking to get away from the racism many were looking for schools to accept them, but Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, New York and Philadelphia had all experienced a spike in population. For example Detroit had a original population of maybe 6,000 in 1910, but by 1930 this number hit 120,000.
E. B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington debated whether to confront or appease racist attitudes in the United States. As segregation regimes took hold in the South in the 1890s with the tacit approval of the rest of the country, many African Americans found a champion in Booker T. Washington and adopted his self-help autobiography, Up from Slavery (1901), as their guide book to improve fortunes. Washington portrayed his own life in such a way as to suggest that even the most disadvantaged of black people could attain dignity and prosperity in the South by providing themselves valuable, productive members of society deserving of fair and equal treatment before the law. A classic American success story, Up from Slavery solidified Washington’s reputation as the most eminent African American of the new century.
He had a say in many important documents that dealt with the rights of blacks. An example is the Emancipation Proclamation which changed the economy of the U.S. because it ended forced labor. He took on government positions after the Civil War. He was the president of the Freedman's Bank, appointed marshal and recorder of deeds for the District of Columbia, chargé d’affaires for Santo Domingo and minister to Haiti. He was also the first African American to be nominated for vice president which was very important in American history since a few years before that black were not even acknowledged as American
The kkk was flourished in the 1920s because in the 1920s was the time or the renaissance took place and began being popular to move out all of the African Americans because they thought they were beginning to be intellectual.

They were treated poorly and had to do a lot of jobs, the black prisoners normally were used to do the more cruel jobs.
During the first two decades of the twentieth century, a large and diverse number of Americans claimed the political label “Progressive.” Progressives all shared a common fundamental belief of developing methods to counteract against the political and social issues of the time. They thrived in tackling some of the most crucial issues of society, as they were able to improve the conditions of the urban environment, increase the democratic influence of citizens, and sap most corruption out of the government. However, as the Progressive Movement successfully managed to cover those areas, it was limited to solving the issues of only white Americans, failing to represent the minorities, especially African Americans. The first major area of reform
He compares the Afro-Americans to those bees, who are deprived and meagrely paid by their white bosses. But unlike the bees the African-American people are able to escape from this cycle, as Hughes emphasises (172). According to him the state of economic imbalance can and will be overcome. One of his most important poems during the Red Decade is "One More “S” in the U.S.A.", published in 1934. Hughes describes his visions of a new American state.
Despite Nelson Mandela’s dense progress to improve Black lives quality, once out of power, his progress was highly maintained by the successor Thabo Mbeki (1999-2002), who focused on improving aspects, which Nelson Mandela and de Klerk had previously achieved. Thabo Mbeki was responsible for the change in the South African society as he worked on various aspects of quality of life yet some of his decisions were quite contradicting. He began with the decision of inducing the creation of the ‘two nations’, which was the alienation of whites, which resulted in the creation of some tension between both races. This meant that Mbeki was contradicting all the previous work of Mandela and De Klerk to attempt a unification of South Africa in order
Southern states justified slavery by using many points. They used the economy, history, religion, legality, social, and humanitarianism. One reason was that if all slaves were freed, there would be a very high unemployment. Another reason the South had was that having slaves would boost the economy. Southern states defended slavery by using history:” Slavery has been legal for a long time before now, so it is a natural thing to do.” On the other hand, the main point was that slaves planting and picking cotton would heavily boost the economy.
Black History Month started in 1915 and was made to appreciate colored people and has carried on for centuries and is still around. The good and the bad in the declaration.The good is the African-Americans won at the declaration at court.

This essay discusses black people in the 1900s and their thoughts on The Great Migration. Slaves had just been emancipated, however 64 years later the struggle for survival didn’t get any easier for them. Blacks in the south was drowning, and barely maintaining. Blacks in the north however, were doing more decent then people in the south. It was easier for northerner to get a job and afford education, southerners on the other hand could not, and in fact they work more in fight to live than survive.
If his statement is true, then why shouldn’t college athletes get paid? With their success they endorse their college, through ticket sales, merchandise, media, and branding. A Duke Blue Devils sweatshirt can sell for up to $100, but without the success they’ve had because of their athletes would people still be inclined to purchase it? Tickets to attend a Duke Blue Devils basketball game can range up to $1000, but college athletes don 't see any of that money even though they are the ones providing the entertainment which certainly does not seem right. In the same article Brian Frederick said “ Fans must understand that college sports is a big business”, and this is very true, but the reason it is such a big business is because of the athletes.
