Same Problem: Different Solution Essay

904 words - 4 pages

     The African- American Community has been blessed with a multitude of scholars. Two of those scholars include Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du bois. Both of these men, had a vision for African- Americans. They wanted to see the advancement of their race of people. These great leaders just had different viewpoints as to how this should be accomplished. Mr. Washington’s viewpoints are based on his own personal experience and understanding of politics. Mr. Du bois’ viewpoints came from his knowledge of the importance of education and its ability to break down barriers of color.

     Washington and Du bois wanted to see the advancement of the African-American people. The question was “How could they advance?” There is a twelve-year age difference amongst the two gentlemen. I could see the difference that a decade could make in the mindsets of the two gentlemen. Washington is the elder of the two. He was apart of the slavery system not merely a product of it.

When the slaves learned they were free there was a feeling of excitement, followed by one of the reality that they were now responsible for providing for their families, shelter, food, clothing and a better way of life. He talks about the connection and bond that they continued to share, as the slaves began to prosper and the master and his family began to suffer. Washington remembers his new life in West Virginia.

This resulted in him going to school at night and traveling several miles in...
