Sam Freeman's insight:

I should include how Africans Americans moved to cities in the north and west in defense industries and they were often met with violence. Also thatPhilip Randolph, President of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and other black leaders met with Eleanor Roosevelt and members of the presidents cabinet. Another thing is that Randolph presented a list of grievances regarding the civil rights of African americans  Demanding the executive order be issued to stop discrimination. But also Randolph threated to bring tens of thousands of negros to the white house lawnif their demands were not met

Editor's note: For those who are wondering about the retro title of this black-history series, please take a moment to learn about historian Joel A.
Sam Freeman's insight:

One thing I need to tell you is that it was difficult for African Americans not to see the hypocrisy between conditions at home and the noble war aims President Franklin Roosevelt articulated in his famous Four Freedoms speech on Jan. 6, 1941. And even know FDR passed that Executive Order 8802 racial segregation still was in the military. One thing I cant believe is The U.S. government lied to the working class with propaganda saying the racial segregation was over but it still occurred. And its amazing how The biggest news paper in the blacks time urged blacks to join the war efforts and help out America

President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802, also called the Fair Employment Act, on June 25, 1941.
Sam Freeman's insight:

FDR signed the Fair Employment act and made it so that all blacks were gonna be treated equal in the working world such as militry jobs and jobs that they couldnt have before. FDR signed the Fair employment act because of Philip Randolphs threat to bring tens of thousands of blacks to the front of the presidents lawn and protest. knowing this FDR passed the Executive Order 8802
