I can't wait to see how he does the Jim Crow era.  I am completely convinced that it was even more damaging than the whole of slavery.  

Here is the episode (Diane you can't get to the PBS site?)

Tonight's episode is going to be soooo good.   I'm a huge fan of the Jim Crow Museum site he's going to discuss.





Episode Four: Making a Way Out of No Way (1897 – 1940)
Tuesday, November 12, 8-9 p.m.

Making a Way Out of No Way portrays the Jim Crow era, when African Americans struggled to build their own worlds within the harsh, narrow confines of segregation. At the turn of the 20th century, a steady stream of African Americans left the South, fleeing the threat of racial violence, and searching for better opportunities in the North and the West. Leaders like Ida B. Wells, W.E.B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey organized, offering vastly different strategies to further black empowerment and equality. Yet successful black institutions and individuals were always at risk. At the same time, the ascendance of black arts and culture showed that a community with a strong identity and sense of pride was taking hold in spite of Jim Crow. “The Harlem Renaissance” would not only redefine how America saw African Americans, but how African Americans saw themselves.

Mama was heated!LOL

I'm really excited about tonights episode.  I've been saying this for a while but I'm going to repeat it, we could have survived slavery and come out equal but we are currently living under the direct results of Jim Crow.    The overall representation of blacks is shaped by the stereotyping.  It was extremely effective.    The museum even has current examples of how its still used:

^ You mean talking about them in front of the kids?  My son is so sweet he always tries to explain their behavior rationally.   He thinks they were just confused.

I'll be tuning in. Although I'm not really expecting to learn anything new at this point (hopefully I'm wrong). The first episode was unchartered territory for a lot of people but everything else has been well documented. I'm more interested in how he's going to present it. He has a knack for making history so accessible.
