== == Because of the American society in the early and mostly mid 20th century, blacks and whites were kept completely separate. Whites did not consider blacks to be their equals, even though they have always been equal. To answer the question, yes they did go to the same schools, but they were separated; whites and blacks were not in the same class. A black teacher would teach the black students, and a white teacher would teach the white students. Also, black teachers would not get paid as much as white teachers. The above answer is true for some parts of the country, but not for all. In the north, and in the larger cities there was a good deal of mixing of the races. Still, below the mason-dixon line there was strict separation. Even of water fountains and laundry-mats. The country was less homoginized then so that there were every possible set-up as you moved from town to town.

In the early 1960's people with the different skin colour (Blacks and Whites) where treated differently. They had also had to use different public facilities. For example, Blacks couldn't eat in the same restaurants, drink out of the same drinking fountains, or use the same bathrooms as Whites. Blacks were lived in ghettos while Whites were moving into richer suburban areas. Many did not have a chance to vote. Blacks and Whites usually went to separate schools. President John F. Kennedy helped change this unfairness by developing the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 banned segregation in the US schools and public places. It also started the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded in 1909 by both blacks and whites to help further political, social, and economic causes of African Americans.

I think it would be fair to say that in the earliest days of the Witnesses, in the late 19th century and early 20th century, then there would have been a bias towards that view. Please see the 'related links' below for an article that gives quotes from early Watchtower publications. But this was probably a reflection of the racial stereotypes more prevalent in society at the time.

'Segregated' usually means seperated. A lot of the time segregation is used to describe the separation of whites from blacks through the early and mid-1900s.

Racial violence in the early twentieth century was mainly associated with economic issues. The East St. Louis riot killed at least 100 blacks. The Atlanta, Omaha and Chicago riots killed hundreds of blacks and were caused by economic tensions. In many cases, the rioters were represented by a large segment of ethnic white immigrants, who competed with blacks for jobs.

no they didnt because the white hated the blacks thank you Newyorkminute1 says that Blacks did indeed attend the same schools as white citizens, however I need to make a distinction between Black American that looked Black had to attend Negro colleges in the Eastern and Southern U.S., the Negroes that were "passing" and also those that were wealthy functioned in society as White Americans. There is a rather large book at the library entitled something like Black Aristocracy in the 17001's and 1800's in the U.S. People who were very light Negroes even went so far as to join the "Blue Vein society" in which you had to be light-skinned enough to see the blue veins in your wrist. Rather racial and snooty for me, but we are talking about rich people in early America. Hope this has enlightened you, also these schools are called Grambling, Hampton University (I think the oldest Negro College in the U.S.) Many more...just search for Black Colleges in the U.S.

Scientists have no idea what race was the first race on Earth - the early humans did not look very much like modern people, so it's hard to put them into a race. However, the earliest fossils of humans have come from Africa, so it's probably pretty safe to say that Blacks were here first.
