How does the New Deal relate to African Americans?
During the New Deal, Roosevelt appointed more than 100 African Americans to key positions in the government . Mary McLeod Bethune- an educator who dedicated herself to promoting opportunities for young African Americans.. She worked to ensure that the NYA ( national youth administration) hired African-American administrators and provided job training and other benefits to minority students. She also helped organize a "Black Cabinet" of African Americans to advise the Roosevelt administration on racial issues. The New Deal ignored civil rights of African Americans, so they organized the southern tenant farmers union- sought to protect the rights of tenant farmers and sharecroppers, both white and black. In the north the union created tenants' groups and launched campaigns to increase job opportunities. In general African Americans did support the Roosevelt administration and the New Deal.
