Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Discusses the "Double V" civil rights campaign in New Jersey that began during World War II. Blacks supported the Double V campaign, which linked the World War II victory over fascism with a domestic victory over racism and segregation. The article traces the development of an African American civic culture and the efforts of black New Jersey residents to battle such practices as the segregation of public swimming pools and the race-based segregation of Red Cross blood donations.
