Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 1

A Single American Nation


 Background: When the First World War began, African-American leaders   pressed the government to provide black men the right to go to combat to   prove their devotion to their country. Hoping that their service would lay a   stake on citizenship that the nation would have no choice but to honor, the   “New Negro” of the 1920s adopted a more militant stance toward civil rights.   The civil rights struggle envisioned at the time, however, made few concrete   gains. Discrimination and disenfranchisement persisted.

  African-American leaders responded to the Second World War much as they had   to the First, offering their services while expecting recognition in return.   They intended to fight a “Double-V Campaign” against fascism abroad and   racism at home. They helped to kill fascism abroad; racist policies at home   survived, but only for a time. Less than a decade after the war ended, the   Brown case struck down the principle of “separate but equal” in schools. A   grass-roots movement emerged to challenge discrimination elsewhere. By 1965, nonviolent   means had murdered Jim Crow. Yet, the 60s were nothing if not a violent   decade, marred by war, riots, and assassinations. By the end of the decade,   Americans were as divided in some ways as they had ever been, and hopes for   integration into a single American nation largely gave way to an emphasis on   the unique needs and interests of different groups within the nation.
