        In this video from INDEPENDENT LENS: "Birth of a Movement" students learn about several milestones in African American history that took place during the year 1895, including the landmark Supreme Court case Plessy vs. Ferguson, the death of Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington’s “Atlanta Compromise” speech, and W.E.B. DuBois’ graduation from Harvard University.  The video also introduces students to the Niagara Movement and its offshoot, the NAACP.
