Bridging Race Divides

The study concludes that the vision of several black women who fought against racial discrimination and segregation during the 1930s was biracialism based on equality and fairness rather than integration. Black women who rallied for the abolition of racism and segregation firmly believed that African American institutions should have equal opportunity and equal access to resources and state provisions. While integration was often seen as a means to harbor equality, it was set aside and was casted with doubt whether it was the best option for African Americans. It was not holistically seen as a feasible option, at least not until white Americans proved able to learn to see African Americans as equals and treat blacks with respect.
