African Americans and their fight for freedom in 1930s

"The whites were as miserable as their black victims, I thought. If this country can't find its way to a human path, if it can't inform conduct with a deep sense of life, then all of us, black as well as white, are going down the same drain."

-Richard Wright, BLACK BOY, 383

What path did African Americans and their allies find and/or lose during their 1930s fight for freedom?

The fight for the rights of African Americans in the thirties was mostly unsuccessful. It was a time of rampant discrimination. Slaves had been freed for three generations, but their people were still considered inferior by much of society everywhere, not just in the South.
