Not only did Washington write his story from the perspective of a slave, but he also wrote with the intention of appealing to white southerners. On the contrary, W.
DuBois wrote from the perspective of a man that never experienced slavery. Unlike Washington, DuBois believed that education and menial jobs should not be the goal of African Americans.
Instead of being worried about gaining the audience of the white southerners, DuBois main concern was encouraging African Americans to fight for their rights. He wanted to awaken the desire in the hearts of African Americans to be uncomfortable with their lack of equality.
Alongside writing about the unjust treatment toward African Americans, he wrote about double consciousness and the veil. DuBois felt that there was a veil or disconnect between how black men perceived themselves and how they were viewed in America. Although Washington and DuBois had different views, they both had the desire to see African Americans become great.
Despite the different approaches, Washington and DuBois needed to take the platforms that they chose for their time. DuBois both proved that progress is not only achieved through taking legal action, but it can also be attained through peace.
