William Henry Jernagin was a devout Christian and fierce advocate for civil rights in the first half of the twentieth century. He was senior pastor of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church in the Mount Vernon Square neighborhood for more than forty-five years. His activism made him an internationally recognized figure. He was a foundational leader in the American civil rights movement. His residency allowed him to contribute to the collective action to abolish Jim Crow in the nation’s capital. Through his office in the National Baptist Convention, he also identified the potential in a lesser-known leader of the time, Martin Luther King Jr. Jernagin’s passion lifted him to leading positions in the National Baptist Convention and National Fraternal Council of Negro Churches, as well as close work with Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower. Author Ida E. Jones reveals the story of this often-overlooked leader and his fight for civil rights while living in the District of Columbia.

From the end of the Civil War through 1941, there were 168 North Carolinians who lost their lives to lynching. This form of mob violence was often justified as a means of controlling the black population; protecting white wives and daughters; and defending family honor. Legal attempts to deter lynching--including the 1893 law that classified it as a felony and sought to hold a county liable for damages--generally failed because of a lack of local support and ineffectual enforcement by state officials. After 1922, however, in a phenomenon unique to North Carolina, incidents of lynching inexplicably and rapidly declined, prompting the state to head a national movement1to end it. Appendices provide an account of all 168 known lynching occurrences.

In this curriculum guide, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History continues its emphasis on Du Bois' prophetic statement first enunciated at the Pan-African Conference of 1900 that "the problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line," and moreover the "double-consciousness" or "two-ness" confronting African Americans-"two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring details in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder." In addition to engaging the issues raised in Du Bois' prophetic statement, the editors have chosen to highlight the following themes in his seminal work: The Souls of Black Folk Revisited Black History and Historians The Tuskegee Machine and the Politics of Accommodation Talented Tenth Race Relations Pan-Africanism The Sacred Arts These themes are reflective of the evolving scholarship that W.E.B Du Bois expressed in The Souls of Black Folk and throughout his prolific career. While it is patently impossible to design a curriculum guide around the fifty or more state history standards, the editors have employed the Mid-continent Region Education Laboratory's Content Knowledge: A Compendium of Standards and Benchmarks for K-12 Education as well as consulting the state standards in California, Maryland, Illinois, and Virginia in creating this useful guide.
