Despite Washington’s program that appealed to White-Americans, he was involved in politics and spoke about the disfranchisement of African-Americans. His idea of easing tensions with the superior gathered him more publicity, as to DuBois’s plan of protesting. As a result, DuBois’s idea became more prominent as it branches into what we know now as the civil rights movement. Historically, Washington and DuBois has made a name for themselves, through their intentions for the good will of African-Americans, and that is something that will always hold true in these two notorious
Du Bois way of helping African Americans, but Booker T. Washington’s way was the Tuskegee Institute. The Tuskegee helped to educate the black people with skills so that in the future the whites would accept them seeing that they work hard. Although many may think this was a great way to get civil rights, Du Bois did not. Du Bois founded the NAACP and used it for the power to have a say. “Through the publication Du Bois reached an increasingly large audience- one hundred thousand by 1919- with powerful messages that argued the need for black development and white social enlightenment” (Du Bois 884).
Malcolm X wanted to properly educate his people with the wisdom and knowledge that wasn’t being taught to African Americans as they have been misguided all these years. He stressed the importance of unity in the black community and coming together as one because in all actuality they are all fighting the same war. This speech did a good job empowering. In the end, the goal of Malcolm X’s speech was to reveal the necessity of Black Nationalism and building a black community that stands up to white manipulation, in addition to the urgency for black people becoming politically intelligent, so that they can make wise choices about officials and only choose people who will help the black community. This speech had a dramatic effect on society because it pertained substance.
King's reason for the speech is because he is trying to make a difference, he is a very good well taught speaker and he speaks with so much enthusiasm and nothing could really stop him from anything he's doing.His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination. He wants everyone to that,
The new era was known to be the Progressive Era. Not only were progressives fighting for restoration in social equality, others like muckrakers were revealing the inadequate conditions in factories. Due to these events, African Americans were influenced and they began to seek for their civil rights and equality in a society dominated by the white population. The South, a major area that restricted the rights Africans possessed, began to increase the number of Jim Crow Laws. To deal with this repression, many African Americans including Booker T. Washington and W. E. B.
The opposing ideas of these African American leaders are illustrated in Du Bois’ short story, “Of the Coming of John”, where Du Bois implies his opposition to Washington’s ideas. He shows that the subordination of educated black individuals does not result in gaining respect or equality from the white community. In fact, he suggests that subordination would lead the black community to be further oppressed by whites. However contrasting their views might have been, Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois were significant influential black leaders of their time, who changed the role of the black community in America.
While trying to help make life easier for African Americans in the south, Washington also tried to ease the fears of the whites on blacks wanting to integrate socially. Even though Du Bois understood the importance of the speech, he felt Washington was asking’s blacks to give up pushing and wanting equality in education for their youth and civil rights, which he felt were the exact things that they needed to be trying to
(Moore) Comment: “I feel like Washington was right in his views of how blacks should act after being freed from slavery. In reality we are all still living in slavery and are living in the way that he described in his speech rather we realize it or not.” (Cunningham) My Response: The NAACP used peaceful protest methods such as marches, public speeches, and boycotts to achieve aspirations. This was also done by Martin Luther k... ... middle of paper ... ...ich was more realistic then a university school. Booker T. felt African American could benifit from learning and mastering a trade that would help in real life not just having book smarts and I agree. Of course times have changed and we still have vocational schools and university school.
Du Bois wanted civil rights as well, but in contrast he believe the only way to get it was through political action and demanding for equal rights. He also believe education would get the black race somewhere. “The South believed an educated Negro to be a dangerous Negro. And the South was not wholly wrong; for education among all kinds of men always has had, and always will have, an element of danger and revolution, of dissatisfaction and discontent. Nevertheless, men strive to know” (Du Bois Page) as W.E.B.
The questions that DuBois posed and dealt with along the way of a long and arduous life of unceasing service and dedication to the cause of the freedom of colored people are still challenging responses today. The Negro race like all races is going to be saved by its leaders. The problem with that is the education among Negroes must first of all deal with the undereducated persons. The problem is death in their own race. DuBois is trying to get blacks to gain in political power and that is the way that there will be growth in blacks in America.
