- What happens after the war? There are two big things that happen in the fifties, at least from my view point as an American. President Truman signs into law that people of all races and color must be treated equally in the armed forces. He also makes it America’s policy, or you could say America’s job, to protect democracy all over the world. The first of these is a step in what we know as The Civil Rights Movement. The second is about fighting Communism. Since the second has to do with more wars, let’s put that aside for now and learn about the first.
- During WWII African Americans had to fight for the right to fight for America. They were given separate training schools and fought separately. That is called segregation, or separation.
- Watch this video about the Tuskegee Airmen.
- After African Americans fought and died for America, do you think they felt they deserved to be treated like equals after the war?
