This paper examines the quest for African-American civil rights as a movement for economic justice and opportunity as well. Several African-American philosophers' ideas are illustrated to show different outlooks on economic opportunity and prosperity in the US. Some leaders saw communism as a way to achieve economic parity with whites, while others felt it was necessary to work within the system through gaining a higher education. The role of African-American women in supporting households is also discussed.
