Mervy Michael HIST 366-001/ Prof. Moran Final Paper 12/2/14 Topic 2: Protest versus Accommodation: The W.E.B. Du Bois & Booker T. Washington Debate Booker T. Washington and W.E.B Du Bois are revered as two of the most important figures in black history. Booker T. Washington was born a slave to a black mother and white father.

Through a scholarship, however, he was able to study at Hampton Normal Agricultural Institute of Virginia and years later he graduated in 1875.
This summer I took a trip to Memphis Tennessee and was able to visit the Lorraine Motel. The Lorraine Motel is a National Civil Rights Museum and the assassination site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr... In the museum it depicts key events of the American civil rights movement and the legacy it withstands. The Lorraine Motel was originally called the Windsor Hotel but a couple of years later it was changed to the Marquette Hotel.

FIVE CHIEFS: JOHN PAUL STEVENS AND THE LIBRARY OF BABEL- THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY I’m going to elaborate on this article and the finding of which I explain my views and opinion. I’m glad someone finally wrote on the Supreme Court and it many different views. The Supreme Court is the highest governing body of the United States of America. In the 1998-99 term, the Supreme Court is slated to hear cases on subjects as diverse as business monopolies, labor unions, health insurers, initiative petitions and due process.

Gautreaux Vs Cha was a lawsuit that was made for public housing segregation. It was filed by Dorothy Gautreaux in 1969 through federal court and the case went on although she was dead. “The Chicago Housing Authority and HUD had violated the US constitution which states that everyone is equal.” The purpose was to develop a law that would help all race, the riches and the poor to integrate. HUD and CHA created a plan that specifically had African- Americans to mobilize in to the white areas surrounding the city. In order to relocate 7100 families, it took well over 20 years.
In May of 1954 the Supreme Court landed the Brown v. Board Education ruling, a “momentous case that outlawed school segregation (p. 955, Foner).” Led by Thurgood Marshall he proved that segregation was unequal because it disgraced and alienated one group of citizens as being unfit to associate with another. The ruling was voted in unanimously and the Supreme Court determined that it directly violated the Fourteenth Amendment. While the Brown decision was a major turning point for segregation it was still limited, it only addressed segregation in public institutions and did not even touch on other segregation issues (p. 956-957,
Jade Johnson Professor Miller English 1304 15 April 2014 MLK Martin Luther King Jr. goes down in history as one of the principal leaders of the civil rights movement in the United States and a noticeable advocate of nonviolent protest.
