Students and scholars of Washington's autobiography, "Up From Slavery" will benefit from a review of W. E. B. Du Bois' response to Washington in his own work, "The Souls of Black Folk" (1903). In this work Du Bois suggests that Washington's "slow and steady" approach to equal rights for African Americans is ineffective. Du Bois calls for immediate measures in the form of voting rights and educational opportunity.
I feel like too much of this article feels like a Sparknote, what with the bullet-pointed "themes" section and the chapter summaries. I'm going to come back and work on it later, but just wanted to say that this probably seems some radical restructuring. Thrashunreality (talk) 03:09, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
