Best Answer

World War II set the stage for the Civil Rights Movement. The immediate demand for soldiers created a shortage of white male workers in the labor force. President Roosevelt issued a directive banning any discriminatory practices by federal agencies or those involved in war related industries. This opened new job opportunities for blacks and set the stage for the Civil Rights Movement.
