This paper consists of two article reviews about two articles written regarding the civil rights movement of African Americans in the United States during the early parts of World War II. The writer points out that the first article, by Stanley High, was published in 1942 and represents a powerful critical analysis of the social forces shaping the civil rights movement. The writer also notes that the second, by Jim O'Neal, published in 1970 is a lackluster attempt to connect blues music with war protest with the early civil rights movement.

From the Paper:

"That World War II had an effect on the development of the civil rights movement for African Americans in the United States is almost certain. An event that large had far-reaching social influences from economic opportunity to equality issues in the armed forces. Stanley High, in his "How the Negro Fights for Freedom," expertly examines some of these issues and developments as they were happening. The result, from the perspective of a critic looking back on the era, is both enlightening and disturbing. The article is enlightening because, published in 1942, it provides historians with a first-hand account of the feelings of people actually living in the era of the struggles of African Americans and how some were using the war opportunistically to fuel a civil rights movement."
