    While the war was on, the country really needed workers badly - so Black workers were more welcomed into the work force.

    Under pressure from African-American leaders, most notably union head A Philip Randolph, President Franklin Roosevelt signed an executive order forbidding racial discrimination in defense industries. The jobs created by the war allowed some African Americans to make more money then they had before and to move into more prestigious jobs, at least temporarily.
