    Trivia Games
    Jim Crow laws were named for an ante-bellum mistral show character. The minstrel show is one of the first indigenous forms of American entertainment. The tradition began in February 1843 when a group of four white men from Virginia, billed as the "Virgina Minstrels", applied black cork to their faces and performed a song-and-dance act in a small hall in New York City. The performance was such a success that the group was invited to tour to other cities and imitators sprang up immediately. These troups were successors to individual performers who imitated Negro singing and dancing. One of the earliest and most successful individual performers was Thomas Dartmouth "Daddy" Rice. Rice, a white actor, was inspired by an elderly Negro in Louisville, Kentucky crooning and dancing to a song that ended with the same chorus: "Weel about and turn about and do jis so,
    Eb'ry time I weel about I jump Jim Crow." Rice's imitation of the Negro's song and dance routine took him from Louisville to Cincinnati to Pittsburgh to Philadelphia and finally to New York City in 1832.

    About the Project:
    When completed this collection will include accurate transcriptions of many important and representative primary texts from nineteenth century American history, with special emphasis on those sources that shed light on sectional conflict and transformations in regional identity. Because of our location in South Carolina and the salient role of its natives in the era's history there will also be a number of materials relevant to South Carolina or South Carolinians. Almost all of the documents have been transcribed from originals by myself or by Furman students. The originals are in the public domain. These electronic versions may be copied freely as long as proper attribution is given. To maintain a balance between accuracy and quick production we have decided to post some documents before the final round of proofreading has taken place. Versions that have been reverse-order proofed against the original texts are indicated with a as they are re-posted. All un-starred documents should be used with the awareness that minor errors may exist in them.

It functioned as a part of the State Department until 1978 when it merged with the United States Information Agency. The basic collection consists of papers generated while CU was in the State Department, from 1938 until 1978. The remainder consists of papers produced after CU moved to USIA in 1978. The collection was presented to the University of Arkansas by the United States Information Agency in the spring of 1983.

    Dr. Martin Luther King's Speeches In Jersey City

    The Afro-American Historical Society Museum was organized as a committee by Captain Thomas Taylor, President of the Jersey City Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. He saw a need to develop an appreciation for the historic and cultural heritage of African Americans. Toward this end he contacted Theodore Brunson, a lay historian in Afro-American history; Mrs. Nora Fant, a long time and active resident of Jersey City; and Mrs. Virginia Dunnaway, a community worker and teacher. Together they formed the Historical and Cultural Committee setting as its purpose the research, collection, preservation and exhibition of Afro_american history and culture. The committee chose February, Black History Month, as the appropiate time to present a program and exhibition on its findings. In 1984, the Afro-American Historical Society Museum obtained a permanent location on the second floor of the Greenville Public Library. The spcace was granted by the trustees of the library. It gave rise to great optimism for the future. As an incorporated entity with a permannet location, it was then possible to qualify for grants and to solicit donations. It also encouraged the further development of the historical and cultural African American exhibitions and programs.

    A short fractured history of Friends in America
    Friends have been in the Americas for three centuries, and from time to time their Religious Society has been split. Some splits still affect the Society, although in the last hundred years or so there have been attempts at reconciliation, partially successful. This document gives a brief overview. One reference for these paragraphs is Margaret Bacon's The Quiet Rebels: The Story of the Quakers in America . For another account of the same history, see Mike Hopkin's Quaker Alphabet Soup For one account, written by a non-Friend, see the pages here on the Keithian schism . Several elements of this account seem particularly striking in light of the dynamics of later splits. The initial conflict centered on "the sufficiency of the inward Christ," as distinct from the "historical Christ" given in Scriptures. This question still resonates in Friends' religious thinking. Also, it's interesting how Friends tried to handle the growing conflict using their standard devices; in the end the differences proved irreconcilable. Then, once the Keithians established themselves as a separate group, with stronger emphasis on specific doctrines and practices such as baptism and communion, they faced further division over such matters, and within a decade or so most if not all of the "Christian Quakers" joined other denominations such as Seventh Day Baptists, Presbyterians and Episcopalians. Quakers in other parts of the American colonies particularly in Rhode Island, Maine, on Long Island, New York, and in smaller numbers in Maryland and south apparently were not much affected by these goings-on in the Philadelphia area, and the Lloydian/Keithian schism might be called a local affair.

    Japanese-American Relocation / Internment

    Other Web Sites:
    Emotionally, politically and racially charged, the issue of the Japanese-American Relocation during World-War II is an event that just won't go away. Claims have been made that American citizens were imprisoned against their will in "concentration camps," and that the entire fiasco was motivated by war time hysteria, racial bigotry, and opportunistic businesses that wanted to snap up property left behind by the evacuees. Counter claims have suggested that there was complete documented evidence to justify an evacuation of Japanese-Americans and Japanese nationals from the West coast of the United States, and that no American citizen was detained against their will by their own government. Tempers flare and positions become intractable. When searching for truth, sorting the gold from the garbage is a difficult undertaking. Award winning researcher and writer Lillian Baker produced books that clearly show (warts and all) documented evidence of exactly what happened. Each book has a bibliography that will clearly inform all curious researchers. Her Pulitzer Prize nominated work is SO important that it resides in a special archive set aside at The Lillian Baker Collection at the Hoover Institution for War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University. The archive is open to scholars.

    Tales of American "Concentration Camps" Perpetuate Slander By: Richard Estrada, Associate Editor Dallas Morning News - Sept. 26, 1996 WASHINGTON, D.C. - I was walking in Georgetown the other day when a friend from Dallas told me her school-age daughter was being taught about America’s "concentration camps" during the Second World War. Right away I knew what she meant. The painful and complicated issue of how the government treated U. S. residents of Japanese descent was reverberating again this time during a Sunday stroll up Pennsylvania Avenue. Everyone agrees it was a sad episode. But more than 50 years since the war’s end, the story of the relocation or internment of 125,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans between 1942 and 1946 is getting sadder all the time. Sadder because politically motivated historical revisionists are distorting the facts to the detriment of America. Historical Revisionists claim Manzanar Relocation Center was an "internment" or "Concentration Camp." If so, then why was there only a plain sign in both English and Japanese stating the sign in the center's boundary? No fence. No barbed wire. No guard towers. Exercising the politics of aggrievement, Japanese American advocates and their politically correct allies, have already succeeded in getting the State of California to erect an historical marker mistakenly designating the first of the relocation camps as a concentration camp. [Additional such designations appear on bronze plaques at the site of the Segregation Center at Tule Lake, California, and at the site of the Family Internment Center at Crystal City, Texas.]
