PRA Archive #: 

The first in a series of ten lectures delivered by distinguished professors from around the nation on African Americans' struggle against poverty, ignorance, and prejudice, and contributions to American culture. The talks were delivered during a ten-day seminar sponsored by the U.C.-Berkeley Extension Service. This first lecture is a scholarly and humorous presentation of the growth of the Civil Rights movement from 1884 to 1963 by University of Chicago history professor John Hope Franklin. Franklin recalls past attitudes toward Black equality and freedom with reference to the 1884 writings of Black journalist T. Thomas Fortune, E. Franklin Frazier's "Pathology of Race Prejudice," the Garvey Movement of the 1920s, the Mass March on Washington in August, 1963, and other milestones in the struggle for racial justice. A question and answer period follows Franklin's presentation. The live recording is followed by about 15 minutes of programming by Philip Elwood on blues songs aimed at the Jim Crow condition on BB0440.01B.
