African American History, May 3

Chapter 16 Review Notes

In the early 20th C. there were progressive reforms (looking out for the little guy)
example today: minimum wage

Black leaders looked to overcome challenges

Booker T. Washington - wanted Blacks to be educated - founded Tuskeegee Institute

W.E.B. Dubois - wanted blacks to stand up for rights and demand political and legal equality

1909 - NAACP founded. result of Springfield Riots -led whites

Washington was against the NAACP

Beginning of 20th C. there were many race riots.... violent - often an excuse for violence

The great migration led to riots too

1910-1940 1.75 million AAs moved North, known as great migration

Biggest communities were Chicago, New York

Caused friction in the new cities
