PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What was the African American Double V Campaign? Faced with overt racism and daily discrimination, many Black Americans could have justifiably turned their backs on America as it began the fight against foreign enemies during WWII. Instead, African American civilians and soldiers mounted the "Double V" Campaign. By proving themselves capable and reliable in the American war effort, Blacks hoped to win a double victory: victory over foreign enemies and victory over domestic racism. With this lesson, students will learn about the heroic accomplishments and unfortunate setbacks experienced by African Americans in WWII.

Throughout this lesson students will:

1) Respond to a Bell Ringer that makes them consider whether they would fight or stay home if WWIII broke out.

2) Read a short informational piece about the Double V Campaign

3) Discuss two historical posters that demonstrate the themes of the Double V Campaign

4) Analyze two secondary sources that reveal the difficulties African Americans faced at home and overseas during WWII.

5) Create a Double V Campaign poster that demonstrates full understanding of this campaign.
