  • The Negro In the South,the only book where the two great authors,W.E.B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington author in the same book is one that those interested in the subject matter here should read.
    The well know Washington/Du Bois debate,culminating in one of the most popular and beautiful literary works that American writing has ever produced,The Souls of Black Folk(mentioned in the cast) throws much light on the debate.
    As the genius Du Bois pointed out,as Andrew Zimmerman does,only over one hundred years ago,Washington was a very self-contradictory character. He supported civil rights law,but secretly;he fought for the university education and setting for the Negro mind;but opposed it in practice;he advocated going Up From Slavery,but pushed Negro hands down to chattels.
    Du Bois once visited Andrew Carnegie with Washington.
    Washington asked Du Bois to stay downstairs,fearing he would not appear subservient enough for Washington and Carnegie. Du Bois did,as he pitied and opposed he who would comply with colonialism and imperialism to deny Black folk as full human beings,a birthright written in the stars.
