For this discussion, review your readings for Unit 7 and read the following scenario carefully. Feel free to do research outside the course if you’d like other points of view.
Scenario: John Smith was an African American veteran of World War I. He was a member of the 369th Infantry Regiment, also known as the Harlem Hellfighters. After receiving recognition in France for bravery in battle and fighting to preserve democracy in Europe, Smith returned to his home in Philadelphia, PA. On the morning of May 10, 1919, Smith attended a local NAACP meeting, hoping to continue his fight for democracy in the United States. One attendee stated that black veterans like Smith were new men and world men, awakened by their experience abroad and whose power to invoke change was limitless. He emerged from the meeting with a sense of pride and a new sense of purpose. As he rounded the corner onto Pine Street, Smith found himself in the middle of an anti-black race riot. White mobs attempted to tear his uniform from his body, accusing him of Bolsevism for being a member of the NAACP, and demanding that he and other blacks in the neighborhood immediately leave the city. He overheard a black neighbor yell, “If you are attacked defend yourself like American citizens. When they tread upon your rights fight them to the bitter end.”
Prepare a discussion where you take the role of ONE of the following individuals and explain who that person was and how they would have responded to the riot. Why did the riot happen? How should the blacks being attacked respond, according to your individual’s point of view?
John Smith, the African American World War I veteran
The white anti-black, anti-socialist, member of the mob
A member of the NAACP
The black neighbor under attack

American history since 1877 can be divided in periods of rapid change and intermittent periods of relative calm. Among notable periods of rapid and substantial change, one can identify the Progressive Era (ca. 1880-1920), the New Deal (1933-1945), and the post- World War II years (ca. 1945-1968). Observing politics, economy, society, culture, gender and race alike, which period produced the most substantial change?
Discussion #10: The Struggle for Civil Rights
Throughout the 1950s African Americans in northern cities grew increasingly active in opposing discrimination and in protesting white resistance to black progress in housing, education, and employment. Martin Luther King and others embarked on a campaign of nonviolent resistance and demonstrations, which spread to the south. Some of the leadership in the Deep South responded with brutal force, taking a militant stand against change, and in defiance of federal legislation to grant African Americans their civil rights.
In order to prepare for this discussion forum:
Review and identify the relevant sections of Chapter 29 that support your discussion.
Read DEBATING THE PAST: The Civil Rights Movement
Review the material contained in the site Responses Coming from the Civil Rights Movement.
After you have completed your readings post your response to only one of the following questions:
Identify and list some of the factors that contributed to the success of the Civil Rights movement. Choose one, and discuss its significance to the movement, and explain why you made this particular choice.
“Ironically, the reaction of many southern whites to the civil rights activities may have actually served to help the blacks’ cause.” Agree or Disagree with this statement. Make sure that you provide evidence to support your argument.
Refer back to pages 35-79 in Reforming America, choose one of the mid-19th century religious/utopian communities or bodily/self-improvement movements and describe its basic beliefs. How did the movement that you chose fit into the overall spirit of reform during the time period?
