Name: Professor: Course: Date The Influence of African Organization on Black Economic Empowerment and Equality Introduction As the twentieth century dawned leaders and organizations began to rise among the black people in America. Majority of these leaders and organizations were determined to find equality in the treatment of African Americans and other minority groups in the United States. As the decade went by Black Nationalist organizations emerged with the US organization and the Black Panther Party being the most prominent organizations. Hitherto they remain important topics of discussion in the study of African American history. The emergence of leaders and organizations to spearhead the agenda of equality of Black Americans in the United States also provided a platform for them to rise economically through creating an identity for them. Discussion For a long time the black community in the US has faced inequality in treatment. Despite the fact that prominent organizations are the US organization and the Black Panther Party. The former was focused on creating the identity of blacks through embracing of the African culture and heritage. The latter was infamous for having members who were very violent towards their antagonists. However these organizations all had an element of creating economic empowerment to the black people.
