Kalisse Richardson Survey of African American History II March 5, 2008 MIDTERM What factors led to the rise of Booker T. Washington? What was his philosophy and how did it relate to the time in which he rose to prominence? (Be specific: i.e. the moral, social, economic aspects of his program.) What was the genesis of the conflict with W.E.B. Du Bois? The rise of Booker T. Washington came shortly after his 1895 speech, the Atlanta Compromise. Before this speech had virtually launched his career, he was the founder of Tuskegee Institute looking for funds for his institution. In his speech The Atlanta Compromise, Washington is lobbying for a fare trade with whites for the African American citizens. The theory involves trading for economic stability. His ideas of physical skills and lack of classical education were what attracted whites to him. His way of thinking was very similar to theirs. The theory of Accommodationism comes to play when dealing with Booker T.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
