"African Americans Fighting Fascism and Racism" -- Matthew Delmont



https://popularresistance.org/african-americans-fighting-fascism-and-racism/

from the article linked above, a portion of a Langston Hughes poem (https://www.mesaartscenter.com/download.php/engagement/jazz-a-to-z/resources/archive/2016-2017/teacher-resources/hughes-beaumont-to-detroit)

“Looky here, America / What you done done / Let things drift / Until the riots come […] You tell me that hitler / Is a mighty bad man / I guess he took lessons from the ku klux klan […] I ask you this question / Cause I want to know / How long I got to fight / BOTH HITLER — AND JIM CROW.”
