Excerpts from Up from Slavery (Booker T. Washington) and Souls of Black Folk (W.E.B. DuBois).

After reading the excerpts, answer the following questions: Describe Washington and DuBois’ ideas on how African Americans could move forward after slavery. Which one had the better ideas? Why? Requirements Your initial response should be at least 2 paragraphs (5-8 sentences each). Make sure you do a thorough job of supporting your ideas with direct evidence (quotes/explanation) from the essay. You must respond to 2 classmates’ posts in a substantive way, and choose posts that address different essays from the one you chose.This means you should address the ideas within your classmates’ post and comment on those ideas. Avoid critiquing the writing, grammar, organization and MLA style. Your response to each classmate should be at least 1 complete paragraph (5-8 sentences). Be sure to include an MLA style citation for your chosen essay at the end of your discussion post and use in-text citations for ALL quotes and examples from the text. Since these discussions are less formal than the writing assignments, you may use first person (I, we, us, our) but second person (you, your, you’re) is NOT appropriate.
