21. Presidential Proclamation: African-American History Month
OFFICE OF EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY. National African american history Month,1998. African american history is one of the great human chronicles of all time.
National African American History
Month, 1998
A frican American history is one of the great human chronicles of all time. It is the story of men and women who, with extraordinary courage and faith, prevailed against centuries of slavery and discrimination to build lives for themselves and their families and to contribute immeasurably to the strength and character of our Nation. It is the story of millions of people who arrived on these shores in chains, yet who had the greatness of heart and spirit to love this country for its possibilities. It is the story of generations of heroes who with their labor, voices, vision, and blood sought to change the essence of our society our laws, institutions, and attitudes - to reflect the fundamental American ideals of freedom, justice, and equality. African American history is ultimately the story of America's struggle to become a more perfect union. E ach year during the month of February, we focus on a particular aspect of African American history to broaden our knowledge and deepen our appreciation of the countless contributions African Americans have made to the life of our Nation. This year's theme, "African Americans in Business: The Path Towards Empowerment," presents an opportunity not only to celebrate these contributions, but also to build on them.

us with your own opinions.) Oh, by the way, we did not consider the 2000 election for this list.
We suspect it will end up on the list somewhere, some day.
It's just going to take the perspective of history to determine exactly where.
1936 - Vote of Confidence for the New Deal Franklin Delano Roosevelt s landslide victory over Alfred Landon in 1936 acted as a ratification of his New Deal concepts. Roosevelt had introduced an unprecedented expansion of government involvement into the economic aspects of society. His huge victory four years after his initial win told him, and any doubters in Congress, that he had a mandate from the electorate for his leadership. 1960 - The First Television Election Two candidates from a new generation battled each other for the Presidency, the first two candidates born after 1900 (1952/1956 candidate Adlai Stevenson was born in 1900). The election was decided by a razor thin margin, with allegations of election irregularities. The young, popular President who won the election was killed in a controversial assassination that still provokes debate to this day. But what made this election truly influential was the Kennedy-Nixon debates. Though Eisenhower and Stevenson had used television in 1952 and 1956, this was the first time television had a major impact on the final result. After 1960, television became an undisputed influence on final election results.

please refer to our terms and conditions for use of content from this site Here they are, from #10 to #1. Let the arguments begin!
(Email us with your own opinions.) How do we decide which Presidential elections were the least important? We have to acknowledge that any election had some importance, because it chose the United States chief executive for four years. So we need to ask which elections match this statement: “For all the effect the election had on history, we could have skipped it.” Here are my choices, counting down to the most meaningless election in American history:
1924 - Complacency Makes the Choice The Democrats took 103 ballots at their convention to choose someone to oppose incumbent President Calvin Coolidge, who had succeeded Republican Warren G. Harding when Harding died in office in 1923. The factionalized Democratic Party could not even nominate a candidate capable of exploiting the scandal-ridden Harding Administration. Pre-depression prosperity reigned. The divided, contentious Democrats had no appeal to a complacent nation. The election was notable for one of the century s strongest third party runs, by Progressive Robert LaFollette, who courted New Deal voter coalitions eight years before Franklin Roosevelt

National African American History Month, 2002
By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation

During these extraordinary times, America looks forward to new challenges and opportunities with a reinvigorated sense of unity and common purpose. We are a strong and vibrant Nation, thanks to the creativity, fortitude, and resilience of people of every race and background. During National African American History Month, we celebrate the many achievements and contributions made by African Americans to our economic, cultural, spiritual, and political development. In 1915, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson founded The Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. Through that Association, he began pressing for the establishment of Negro History Week as a way to bring national attention to the accomplishments of African Americans. He hoped to neutralize the apparent distortions in Black history and to provide a more objective and scholarly balance to American and World history. Dr. Woodson's dream became a reality in 1926. He chose the second week of February for the observance because of its proximity to the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, two individuals whom Dr. Woodson felt had dramatically affected the lives of African Americans. And in 1976, the Association succeeded in expanding the observance, which then became Black History Month.

    SMITHSONIAN ADDS VOTOMATIC TO PRESIDENTIAL COLLECTIONS The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History will add a Votomatic voting machine to its collections on Nov. 7 during a Palm Beach County, Fla. ceremony. In addition to the machine, the county will donate one of the "butterfly ballots" at issue in the contested presidential election last year. In addition, the museum will accept early prototypes of the Votomatic machine from the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. The builder of the prototypes, William K. Rouverol, of the Berkeley Engineering Department, will participate in an oral history project to discuss the early 1960s invention of the punch card voting system by Joseph K. Harris, then a professor emeritus of government studies at the university. "The Votomatic is part of the machinery of American democracy," said William L. Bird, curator of political history at the museum. "In a political era of focus groups and political polling, the 2000 presidential election brought the voter into the spotlight. We learned that the saying ‘every vote counts’ is true. " Other objects related to the presidential election recount, already in the museum’s collections include protest signs, T-shirts and the magnifying glass used by Broward County Canvassing Board member, Circuit Judge Robert A. Rosenberg. The Votomatic and its prototypes will be added to the museum’s Political History Collection, which includes more than 90,000 objects and dates back to the American Revolutionary War era. They join a collection of ballot boxes, optical scan devices, geared voting machines and other examples of the evolution of American democracy and the vote.

The Web site offers users a world-class virtual exhibition that extends "The Presidency’s" audience to Internet users, providing a rich and enjoyable educational resource for students, teachers and parents.

    Brief History of the AHA When the American Historical Association (AHA) was founded in 1884, history had only recently emerged as a distinct academic discipline. The first few professors in the field of history had only been appointed at major universities in the 1870s. Up to that point, wealthy men with the leisure time to pursue such endeavors did most of the writing of history and collection of historical manuscripts and archives. In 1889, the association was incorporated in the District of Columbia by an act of Congress : "for the promotion of historical studies, the collection and preservation of historical manuscripts and for kindred purposes in the interest of American history and of history in America." The act provided that the association should have its offices in Washington, D.C., and that it should make reports regarding historical matters to the secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, who should then transmit to Congress such reports as he or she saw fit. Executive officers of the American Historical Association photographed during their annual meeting on December 30, 1889 in Washington, D.C. Seated (L to R) are William Poole, Justin Winsor, Charles Kendall Adams (President), George Bancroft, John Jay, and Andrew Dickson White, Standing (L to R) are Herbert B. Adams and C. W. Bowen.

    Social Forces in American History
    By Frederick J. Turner
    President of the American Historical Association, 1910
    Annual address of the president of the American Historical Association, delivered at Indianapolis, December 28, 1910. From the American Historical Review , Volume 16, No. 2, p. 217-233 The transformations through which the United States is passing in our own day are so profound, so far-reaching, that it is hardly an exaggeration to say that we are witnessing the birth of a new nation in America. The revolution in the social and economic structure of this country during the past two decades is comparable to what occurred when independence was declared and the Constitution was formed, or to the changes wrought by the era which began half a century ago, the era of Civil War and Reconstruction. The total deposits in all national banks have more than trebled in the present decade; the money in circulation has doubled since 1890. The flood of gold makes it difficult to gauge the full meaning of the incredible increase in values, for in the decade ending with 1909 over 41,600,000 ounces of gold were mined in the United States alone. Over four million ounces have been produced every year since 1905, whereas between 1880 and 1894 no year showed a production of two million ounces. As a result of this swelling stream of gold, aided by a variety of other causes, prices have risen until their height has become one of the most marked features and influential factors in American life, producing social readjustments and contributing effectively to party revolutions.

IT IS MY PRIVILEGE THIS EVENING to address my historian colleagues as an Africanist about what studying Africa has taught me about history. Africa, as you will recall, was the continent that Hegel and the late-nineteenth-century founders of our discipline excluded from the moral, scientific, progressive methodology they defined as a place inhabited by "people without history". Africa, for them, was a place as remote as they could imagine affectively, culturally, geographically ... far beyond being out of reach intellectually. For them, it was as distant as their sort of history was for the succeeding generations of students in France's colonies in Africa, who began history lessons taught in the colonial style their by reciting "Our ancestors, the Gauls ... ". In my capacity as your president, I am proud to follow Philip D. Curtin as an Africanist. But Professor Curtin, in his 1983 address, spoke about Africa only incidentally, devoting himself instead to themes of comparative and world history. The years intervening since he spoke have brought Africa solidly within the practice of our profession. It is possible now to reflect on Africa's former exclusion from universal history and to chart some of the intellectual pathways along which he and the founding generation of Africanist scholars all around the world not least in Africa, and prominently including Jan Vansina, my other inspiration as a historian at the University of Wisconsin, as well as in other fields of African studies how they created a history of people who had had none.
