Voices of Protest: W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington.
Barnes, Harry W.
The material in this curriculum guide for the high school level is intended as the conclusion of "Voices of Protest," a unit which studies the Industrial Revolution in the United States through the eyes of the contemporary protest groups such as farmers, laborers, Muckrakers, etc., but notably omits the American Negro. This last segment of the unit attempts to rectify this omission by a study of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois, and by suggesting supplementary materials for the preceding sections. Specific objectives of this segment are to: 1) introduce ranking Negro leaders in the late 19th and early 20th century protest movements, 2) increase awareness of racial discrimination, 3) develop habits of critical thinking and inquiry, 4) contrast methods of the two men in seeking solutions to Negro problems, and 5) evaluate the men as leaders. Major concepts and points are outlined, with suggested readings for each, and general questions covering the unit appear at the end. SO 000 351 and SO 000 353 are related. (JLB)
