1 Integrationists vs. Black Nationalists Two Approaches

2 Integrationists believe that Blacks Can have justice in the US Can achieve success in the US Can also have "wholesome relations with the white community" (cone, 34) are Optimistic Can have freedom and democracy

3 Main Point Christianity teaches love and justice and believers must treat people justly and in love because that is what God demands as the creator of all. Jesus died for and we are all one. The integration of blacks into one community is the only option for Christians.

4 Practical Outgrowth There were independent black churches and black churches that were part of white bodies who wanted to separate. Blacks used the same articles of faith and the doctrinal justifications as whites. But the separation meant that blacks were rejecting the ethical behavior of whites. NAACP, SNCC, SCLC

5 Some Integrationists figures Frederick Douglass, Richard Allen, Adam Clayton Powell (Sr. and Jr.), MLk (Sr. and Jr.), Vernon Johns, William Holmes Borders (Wheat Street Baptist Church), Benjamin Mays, Howard Thurman

9 Black Nationalists believe that Blacks are Africans not Americans need not appeal to US Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation or even the "white man's Christianity" need to resist America and affirm their African heritage can achieve justice can only by separation Believe that the issue is not just oppression but the Whites oppressed Blacks strongly identified with being Black or assistance from Whites

10 Main Point Whites can nor would ever imagine Blacks being on the same level as them and therefore real freedom is complete separation to govern one's own affairs with no interference. In order to get respect among of nations one must earn respect.

11 Practical Outgrowth UNIA (Universal Negro Improvement Association), Moorish Science Temple, Nation of Islam, Black Panthers

12 Some Black Nationalists figures David Walker, Martin Delany, Henry McNeal Turner, Marcus Garvey, Noble Drew Ali and Elijah Muhammad.
