EL 266 Du Bois Giving human like qualities to human beings

"Hence arises a new human unity, pulling the ends of earth nearer, and all men, black, yellow, and white." (Du Bois)

So what I thought disregarded racism, really wasn't. It still is about overcoming, overall. Making a name for a race. But fighting to be a human being. I assumed all the readings linked to early industrialization. Guess I was sort of stumped as well.
I think how Washington and Du Bois differed was one (Washington) wanted blacks to integrate with all races in the educational field while Du Bois sought to segregate blacks by educating them.
Maybe in-class discussions will further educate me on the differences.


I kind of thought it was the reverse... Washington wanted to educate and DuBois wanted to integrate..
This will be a very interesting discussion in class..
