Campaigners for African-American Civil Rights and How They Defined Freedom

Choose one of the following three groups – campaigners for African-American civil rights, feminists, or working-class activists or unions – and explain how they defined freedom in the years between Reconstruction and World War I.

To answer this question, make use of primary source documents to explain what methods these groups chose to use in attaining their version of freedom, as well as the difficulties they had in achieving these goals when their definition came into conflict with those of other groups. The underlying question you answer should be: How successful were they by the early 20th century?
