Ferguson between 1930 and 1954. Led by Charles Houston and later by Thurgood Marshall, barristers throughout the deep south and midwest worked diligently to change the laws that restricted Afro-Americans from enjoying the full fruits of the American society
A History of Labor in Columbus, Ohio 1812-1992 by Warren R Van Tine( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the building and printing industries flourished in pre-Civil War Columbus, manufacturing languished. The manufacturing base grew and diversified from 1820 to 1850. Few unions emerged, and those that did seldom lasted long. During the Civil War business and manufacturing increased to serve the camps and prisons established in Columbus. When the war ended, Columbus's workers launched the first concerted effort to build a labor movement. In August 1869 the arrival of the first train of the Hocking Valley Railroad introduced a new chapter in the city's industrial history. By World War I, industry had migrated out of the downtown area. Workers were excluded from a major say in city affairs, confined to overcrowded and inadequately served neighborhoods, and trapped in low-paying, dirty, demanding jobs. The characteristic pattern of the labor movement until the 1930s emerged: workers unionized during prosperity and retreated with recessions. World War I stimulated the economy; peace brought a depression. But because of the city's diverse economic base, it did not feel the depression as severely as other locations; nor did it experience the prosperity of the 1920s to the same degree as other communities; hence, increasingly, the word "moderate" described all national trends as they applied to Columbus. World War ii had the greatest impact upon Columbus's labor movement. Public employment doubled, and the manufacturing sector expanded dramatically. Curtiss-Wright's air force factory work force was unionized shortly after it began production in 1941. For the past 2 decades, the challenge for organized labor in central Ohio has been to launch new initiatives in the face of a dramatically changing social and economic environment.

Mayoral politics and new deal political culture : James Rhodes and the African-American voting bloc in Columbus, Ohio, 1943-1951 by William Russell Coil( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This thesis discusses the impact of New Deal political culture on Columbus, Ohio in the 1940s. The case study involves the political relationship of James Rhodes, Republican mayor of Columbus from 1944 - 1952, and the African-American voting bloc. This study finds that Rhodes' political style and policy agenda converged with the interests and methods of the black community, facilitating a mutually beneficial alliance. Both Rhodes and blacks advocated policies that centered on themes of strengthening the home and the community and embraced New Deal political culture, a style based on pluralism and organizational activity. This story is useful to tell because it suggests that the shift in black voter's loyalty from the party of Lincoln to the party of Franklin Roosevelt occurred neither uniformly nor monolithically, foreshadows changes that occur in the Republican party because of the New Deal, describes a convergence of long term structural patterns with distinct personalities and ideologies that created a fleeting moment of middle ground between blacks and whites, and, finally, illustrates the limits of local public power to address systemic racial problems

A quest for self-determination : the African Methodist Episcopal Church during the age of imperialism, 1884-1916 by Lawrence S Little( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Many African Americans at the turn of the twentieth century concluded that the increased racial prejudice and violence that they suffered was a part of the political, social, and economic domination that European and American imperialists were attempting to impose upon the rest of the globe. In the face of this imperial agenda--an agenda by which the stronger nations of the world seemingly led a worldwide movement against darker people--many of the men and women of the AME developed a black political and theological consciousness that expressed the need for universal human rights and emphasized self-determination and equality for oppressed people at home and abroad
Raising the moral conscience : the Atlantic Movement for African-American Civil Rights, 1833-1919 by Allison J Gough( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study argues, contrary to previous scholarship, that this Atlantic movement continued after the Civil War in the hands of groups that scholars have hitherto neglected. Reexamination of the ante-bellum Atlantic movement reveals that women and African-Americans in particular were important in sustaining trans-Atlantic activism and that the goals and tactics they utilized in the early nineteenth century dominated the freedmen's rights campaign in the late nineteenth century. While this latter campaign never reached the heights of the ante-bellum crusade, organizations in the later period functioned as abeyance structures until the climate for reform became more supportive to their efforts
"The wrongs that are born and suffered in silence" : sexual assault and legal fraternity in nineteenth century Ohio by Siri Briggs Brown( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study is an examination of the socio-legal dynamics surrounding the charge and prosecution of rape and other sex crimes in nineteenth-century Ohio's legal fraternity. The goal is to document the impact of gender and race assumptions upon the women who brought forth charges, the structure and power of the male dominated legal system, changing definitions of the crime, rules of evidence, the experiences of women in court, state supreme court decisions on sexually related crimes, the prosecution, sentencing, and release rate of offenders, and the impact of the efforts of moral reformers and individual women who desired to create more protective legislation. The numerous legal documents cases, and statutes examined are contextualized within broader social, political, and economic forces at work throughout the century that influenced the developing legal system in the emerging state of Ohio in ways that affected the experiences of both men and women in court. As the nation entered the “market revolution” the basic function of law transformed. In colonial America the primary emphasis of law was the protection of morality, by the early nineteenth century, however, the primary emphasis of law became the protection of property, goods, and capital gain. The prosecution of rape, once considered a moral crime deserving severe punishment now lost prosecutorial precedence to economically based crimes like theft, burglary and forgery. In the newly admitted state of Ohio (1803) this shift in the function of law began early in the state's history and continued until well into the 1800s. What complicated matters were the severely overcrowded state penitentiary and saturated court system. The result was the early release of convicted offenders, and a legal system that was forced to decide what crimes were the most important to prosecute, and ensure proper punishment. Rape, a crime suffered primarily by women but defined, judged and sentenced by male legal authority lost importance throughout the course of this dynamic century. Punishments for rape were reduced, convicted sex offenders were pardoned at a higher rate than other offenders, and state Supreme Court Justices overturned convictions made in the lower courts. By the end of the century, however, issues of morality and the legal protection of women reemerged by the efforts of moral reformers and new legislation was written. Within this context, what at first appears to be a very intimate crime between two (or more) individuals results in a very complex interaction involving litigants, juries, witnesses, courtroom officials, high-level state officials, and the local community who anxiously came to view the drama at hand
The Black radical intellectual and the Black worker : the emergence of a program for Black labor, 1918-1938 by Keith P Griffler( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dissertation traces the rise and collapse of a movement for Black liberation in the 1920s and 1930s that profoundly affected the course of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The dissertation centers on a group of African-American intellectuals and activists, led by Abram Harris, John P. Davis, and Ralph Bunche, who coalesced around a program for organizing Black workers into trade unions as the vehicle to transform the American economic structure oppressing African Americans. The study of African-American intellectual history of the 1920s and 1930s corrects previous scholarship by demonstrating that African Americans initiated the Black-labor alliance, rather than organized labor, as has been unanimously maintained
Cooperation, conciliation, and continuity : the evolution of a modern grievence procedure in the Columbus typographical union no. 5, 1859-1959 by Howard Rick Stanger( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study is divided into three time periods. The first period covers the years between 1859 and 1902, before the advent of collective bargaining. Grievance settlement was very informal and personal, but became more formal toward the end of the 19th century as ITU officers assisted in local affairs. The local Executive Committee, formed in 1885, marked a significant change in the process, and remained an important body through the 20th century. The distinctive features of this period include the personal nature of grievance handling, and the local's unilateral control over the grievance process made possible by union foremen
The limits of black power : Carl B. Stokes and Cleveland's African-American Community, 1945-1971 by Leonard N Moore( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

While many members of the community employed extra-legal protest methods, there was also a strong emphasis placed upon voter registration and participation. Although blacks in Cleveland had long held the right to vote, the small percentage of the population often did not allow them the opportunity to place meaningful pressure on local politicians. But even when blacks gained representation in Cleveland City Council, black councilpersons rarely took a strong civil rights stance. As conditions for the black poor continued to deteriorate in the 1960s they began to strategize at the voting booth, with hopes of placing in office politicians sympathetic to their experience. The chief recipient of this political consciousness was Carl Burton Stokes, a native Clevelander, who was quite familiar with the conditions of the working-poor. Throughout his early political career as a State Representative, Stokes established quite a reputation as an advocate for the black poor. This signaled to black voters that he did not represent a sell-out risk to the city's political and business establishment
Black lynching in the promised land : mob violence in Ohio 1876-1916 by Marilyn K Howard( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There were four purposes for this study. First, I wanted to tell the story of a long forgotten part of Ohio's history?the lynching of black men by white mobs. Second, I wanted to ascertain if the theory developed by historian Roberta Senechal de la Roche was correct: that the components of a lynching could be broken down and labeled, and that by doing so, it could be predicted whether a lynching would occur. The latter part of the aforementioned statement is important, for lynching is a premeditated crime. If the components of a particular lynching are known, perhaps that lynching can be averted. Third, I wanted to verify if passage of the anti-lynching law of 1896?the so-called ?Smith law,? named affix Harry C. Smith, a black newspaper owner and Republican state legislator from Cleveland, Ohio?was the reason that lynchings of black men tapered off and ceased altogether after 1916. Finally, I wanted to see if there was a definitive reason for which black men are lynched, be it sexual, economic, or racial.Accordingly, I examined eleven lynchings, and twelve incidents in which lynchings were averted. I also looked at a legal execution?the victim had nearly been lynched before his execution by the state could be carried out?and an incident in which a lynching was reported but found to be a hanging of an iron statute made in the likeness of a black man
"Work or fight" : federal labor policy and the First World War, 1913-1920 by Eric J Karolak( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines the first federal labor policy in American history. It concentrates on the programs devised by policymakers during the World War I era. It argues that labor policymakers fashioned a set of "soft" labor policies separate from hard-nosed dispute resolution. While mediation aimed to resolve conflict, soft labor policy sought to prevent it
