D'Adrian Jones's insight:

This is an actual document of the Executive Order 8802. This really an long document for something much bigger then that. At least this helped the reason of blacks to get jobs. The discrimination is still happenning  but only on the down low. I'ts secretly done but isn't really harmful as it use to be. Now Me as a Black male, we can get jobs equally as white americans.

D'Adrian Jones's insight:

There is evidence that available and needed workers have been barred from employment in industries engaged in defense production. Solely because of considerations of race, creed, color, or national origin, to the detriment of workers' morale and of national unity. All departments and agencies of the Government of the United States concerned with vocational and training programs for defense production shall take special measures.

Executive Order 8802 Discrimination in the Defense Industry
D'Adrian Jones's insight:

That African Americans were being discriminated from jobs. Either they wasn't getting hired or had very low pay rate of money. People had met up A. Phillip Randolph the leader of the Brotherhood and FDR and all the Presidents in the president cabints. Then after a little time goes by FDR issued the "Executive order 8802. Now jobs would have to be fair. So in the North and West blacks are treated somewhat equally with jobs.

D'Adrian Jones's insight:

The "V" for victory sign is being displayed in all so-called dramactic countries. Which are fight for victory. Let we colored Americans adopt the "V" for a double victory. The first "V" is for the victory without, the second is for the victory within our enemies. ( James G. Thompson, 1942).

D'Adrian Jones's insight:

The double V campaign. This shows what was going on at this time. It looks like they are having a celebration  for what they have accomplished. This is the start of something new. Everything else that happened after this with Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King was because of this. The Double V campaign is a very important and historical act.
