Washington vs. Washington spent his early childhood in slavery. Posted on September 25, by Joey Hawn Who is more progressive?
The Civil War Reconstruction had failed to make sure that full rights had been granted to the freed slaves. Due to social segregation, the availability of education for blacks in was fairly limited.
Thanks for watching! Washington's conciliatory approach to civil rights had made him adept at fundraising for his Tuskegee Institute, as well as for other black organizations, and had also endeared him to the white establishment, including President Theodore Rooseveltwho often consulted him regarding all matters black.
Washington, born a slave in Virginia infounded the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama in and became a leading advocate of African American progress. Washington of Virginia and William Edward Burghardt DuBois of Massachusetts, held two very different proposals regarding the best way for African Americans to improve their situations.
Washington's views "racial uplift" for the masses are criticized by many today as more conciliatory than in the definite interests of blacks in America.
