I remember reading about the green book!  It was one of those "little things" that sticks in my head about our way of fighting back.  Making a Way Out of No Way!

This journey of ours is so amazing to me every time I am given the opportunity to relive it.   We have come so so far even though there is so far still to go.  This specific 50yr period should put us further ahead.  Thinking about it now having a Black President marks a repetitive turning point where yts get really mad, act like the terrorists they are and remind us that they ain't sh*t.  They push us several steps back and we counter by surging ahead 10 behind their backs.  While they work to make sure we never elect another black president we should be rebuilding black wall street in every city!!!

ETA:  A black wall street surrounded by tanks and surface to air missilesStern Smile

Man... that was a great episode...

I almost wish when he was talking about the period between 1910-great depression he
would've highlighted how Racist President Woodrow Wilson was... how he segregated the navy, the federal government and how he was just openly hostile towards blacks... not to mention how much he LOVED the most racist movie ever, Birth of a Nation.

You can't discount the racism seeping down from the executive branch and the eventual public response.
You can argue that his attitude towards race relations at the highest level ushered in a new resurgent KKK.

but I understand why that might've been left out.
I did like the part about the Harlem Renaissance though

I didn't realize this was a series. 
I DVR'd the first one. 
I guess I have something to watch when I wake-up later.

Yes Diane Marcus was featured including the deportation.  Dr Gates said the way they did was so cold-blooded and it really set the people back as a unit.   Booker T, WEB DuBois and Marcus Garvey parts were too short!  I know we already know a lot about them but it would be good for the series value later.  The hour goes by sooooo fast!!

I liked how he touched on black people being valued (work the field, take care of white kids, etc) to feared.
