African Americans in the Progressive Era - PBworks

African Americans in the Progressive Era Easily the most striking thing in the history of the America Negro since 1876 is the ascendancy of Mr. Booker T. Washington. W.E.B. Du Bois No exaggeration. At this point in time, Washington yielded more power than any other AfricanAmerican between Douglass and King.

world of work. He believed that African-Americans should concentrate all their energies on industrial education, and accumulation of wealth, and the conciliation of the South. W.E.B. Du Bois gave it the title of "Atlanta Compromise" Du Buois believed it was insufficiently committed to the pursuit of social and political equality for Blacks. 02/07/20

However, Washington also

endorsed segregation by claiming that blacks and whites could exist as separate fingers of a hand. Atlanta Address of 1895 02/07/20 Free template from www.brainybetty.com 9 24:31 02/07/20

17 The Talented Tenth (Du Bois, 1903) Du Bois envisioned a focused effort to educated a portion of the United States black populationas a way to lift up the standing of black Americans. How then shall the leaders of a struggling people be trained and the hands of the risen few strengthened? There can be but one answer: The best and most capable of their youth must be schooled in the colleges and universities of the land. We will not quarrel as to just what the university of the

Negro should teach or how it should teach it I willingly admit that each soul and each race-soul needs its own peculiar curriculum. But this is true: A university is a human invention for the transmission of knowledge and culture from generation to generation, through the training of quick minds and pure hearts, and for this work no other human invention will suffice, not even trade and industrial schools. 02/07/20 Free template from www.brainybetty.com 18

The Souls of Black Folk (1903) 02/07/20 Free template from www.brainybetty.com 19 It is much more difficult in theory than actuality to say the last goodbye to ones loved ones and friends and to all the familiar things of this life. I am going to take a long, deep and endless sleep. This is not a punishment but a privilege to which I have looked

forward for years. I have loved my work. I have loved people and my play but always I have been uplifted by the thought that what I have done well will live long and justify my life: that what I have done ill or never finished can now be handed on to others for endless days to be finished, perhaps better than I could have done. And that peace will be my applause. One thing alone I charge you as you live and believe in life. Always human beings will live and progress to greater, broader and fuller life. The only possible death is to lose belief in the truth simply because the great end comes slowly; because time is long. Goodbye.

Came to the United States in March 1916 after corresponding with Booker T. Washington Purpose was to raise funds for a school like Tuskegee in Jamacia.

02/07/20 Free template from www.brainybetty.com 45 Garveyism The fundamental focus is the complete, total and never ending redemption of the continent of Africa by people of African ancestry, at home and abroad.

It is rooted in one basic idea: "whatsoever things common to man that man has done, man can do". Therefore, Africa can become as glorious and profoundly advanced in the scientific and technological realm as any, when Africans will it to be. The tenets of Garveyism are: 1. race first

2. self-reliance 3. nationhood 02/07/20 The ultimate goal of Garveyism is a United States of Africa which will protect the interests of Black people worldwide. Free template from www.brainybetty.com 46

02/07/20 November 1919. Some say a witch hunt by the Bureau of Investigation. The accusation centered on the fact that the corporation had not yet purchased a ship with the name "Phyllis Wheatley". Although one was pictured with that name emblazoned on its bow on one of the company's stock brochures, it had not actually been purchased by the BSL and still had the name

Orion. When the trial ended on 23 June 1923, Garvey had been sentenced to five years in prison. After numerous attempts at appeal were unsuccessful, he was taken into custody and began serving his sentence at the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary on 8 February 1925. Sentence was eventually commuted by President Coolidge. Upon release in November 1927, he was deported to Jamaica. Free template from www.brainybetty.com 49 02/07/20
