520 8  During World War I, the publishers of America's crusading 
       black newspapers faced a difficult dilemma. Would it be 
       better to advance the interests of African Americans by 
       affirming their patriotism and offering support of 
       President Wilson's war for democracy in Europe, or should 
       they demand that the government take concrete steps to 
       stop the lynching, segregation, and disfranchisement of 
       blacks at home as a condition of their participation in 
       the war? This study of their efforts to resolve that 
       dilemma offers important insights into the nature of black
       protest, race relations, and the role of the press in a 
       republican system. William Jordan shows that before, 
       during, and after the war, the black press engaged in a 
       delicate and dangerous dance with the federal government 
       and white America--at times making demands or holding firm,
       sometimes pledging loyalty, occasionally giving in. But 
       although others have argued that the black press 
       compromised too much, Jordan demonstrates that, given the 
       circumstances, its strategic combination of protest and 
       accommodation was remarkably effective. While resisting 
       persistent threats of censorship, the black press 
       consistently worked at educating America about the need 
       for racial justice.
