Smith v. Allwright and Forgotten History
The History Guy remembers the U.S. Supreme Court decision, Smith v. Allwright, which has been called the key to the Civil Rights movement. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
The History Guy remembers why we should not forget the wreck of one of the last Liberty Ships, the S.S. Richard Montgomery. The question of what to do about it, and its load of explosives, remains today.
This episode was made for educational purposes. The events are portrayed within the context of history. While the events occurred during wartime, the ship never engaged in combat. There are no photos or footage of graphic violence in this episode.
The History Guy uses images that are in the Public Domain. As photographs of actual events are often not available, I will sometimes use photographs of similar events or objects for illustration.
