Washington proposed African Americans to welcome segregation and discrimination in order to focus on uplifting themselves through hard work and dedication. On the other hand, Du Bois strongly opposed Washington's policy and believe it would only ignite the continuation of white tyranny towards African Americans. Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) Booker T. Washington, teacher and without any doubt, one of the most instrumental black leaders of his generation advocated an ideology with the intention to promote, racial harmony and compliance. According to Knight (2008), he urged blacks to pursue education (learn vocational skill), entrepreneurship amongst themselves and self-reliance. This he believed would render blacks indispensable to the whites; therefore, they would gain admiration from the whites and would result in them being wholly acknowledged as citizens and incorporated into society (para 20).
“Of Mr.Booker T. Washington and others” was written by W.E.B Dubois as a critique of Washington and his views on the improvement of black life. The “Atlanta Exposition” was aimed at improving the tension between white and black Americans in the south. The thesis of this speech was that black Americans should be more concerned with furthering their economic standing instead of their social standing. Washington urged blacks to join the work force in the south where they would be given a chance. In front of a predominantly white audience he asked that white southerners hired blacks because of their love for white people they serviced.
W.E.B. Du Bois stubbornly insisted that blacks should be seen as equal to whites in society. Washington, on the other hand, feared that Du Bois' decision would lead to violence and suppression in the black community. Du Bois' and Washington's views on formal education were also strategically different. For example, Du Bois believed that blacks should be able to go to the same school and use the same resources as whites.
Kennedy included phrases such as one-half, one-third, twice as much, and half as much to indicate the chances of an average American Negro to complete certain obstacles equivalent to the average white American. The motivation for such number references is relevant and leads up to Kennedy's thought that "a time of domestic crisis men of good will and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics. Within the speech, Kennedy described this nation to be "founded on the principle that all men are created equal however this applied to everyone but Negroes in the community. Lincoln freed the slaves more than a hundred years ago, but to this day, the slaves'
Compare, contrast and asses the ideas of Booker T, du bois, Randall and Marcus Garvey to overcome the challenges faced by African Americans in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth centauries, African Americans were suffering greatly, due to the apparent effects of segregation. In this notion legal segregation was developing in the south while natural segregation seemed clear in the north. This was down to the realisation of the indifference of wealth between the ‘Blacks’ and the ‘whites’. Inevitably this discrimination also involved much more than just indifference of colour, blacks experienced poor working conditions violent retaliation and even lynching if the status quo of white supremacy was to be challenged.
In the end they won, and slowly but surely the African American’s trust in their country built. In the 19th century, segregation disabled African Americans from receiving recognition as citizens of the USA. During Green’s speech the unifying diction he uses, encourages his “brethren” to try to forget the past segregation, and too put hope into the future rebirth of this great nation. By
To him, emancipation and the freedom of blacks- who now have some sense of control over their lives- was a milestone. I too agree that it was milestone, but unlike me, Washington was content to stay at that level of existence. After slavery, Whites were still very much in control of Black's lives and affairs. There was plenty of injustice and prejudice that led to an inequality in schooling. Washington sought to raise the bar in the Black community's education.
2. Look Past What Whites Are Doing to You and See What You Are Doing to Yourselves: Stop blaming whites for what has happened ages ago and take responsibility for what you have done to yourselves and your communities. 3. Every Black Man Should Put Family First: Children are the future. If black men are not leading by example then how can we expect the children to do any better?

They were demanded to stay apart from the white Americans. Others would not give employment of jobs to African Americans; they would hire white Americans only. (www.shsu.edu/.../Racism%20and%20the%20Civil%20Rights%20Mo) The African Americans’ motives were to gain their freedom, win their rights, and to be rid of racism. These tremendous motives gave them a reason for a civil rights movement. Because of their pains and burdens, they were willing to fight for it.
