During the Late 19th Century and early 20th Century, African Americans were just coming out of one struggle which was slavery and immediately facing another which presented itself in the form of Jim Crow. Many of the Negro Leaders during this time were trying to come up with useful solutions that would be able to effectively combat Jim Crow and these biased laws. Throughout this time, there was for the most part, two different sides as to how to go about getting equal rights for the Negro community. One side proposed accommodating to the white people’s demands and sort of “working their way up” through the hardships and getting equality in the long run. The other side advised that the time for equality was now, by demanding the same God given rights for everyone was the best course of action. They believed waiting for equality was basically waiting for something that would never happen.
