Description

In this class, students will explore the competing perspectives of African-American leaders on how Blacks could attain equality in early 20th century America. Was it through activism and resistance to restrictive laws and policies? Or through hard work within the system? Students will be challenged to form and support their own opinion, and to consider how this debate has lasted into the 21st century, as well.
