W.E.B DuBois vs Booker T. Washington: Which Ideology Was Better For Blacks? Two main proponents of the black community in late 19th and 20th century were W.E.B DuBois and Booker T. Washington. Although they shared similar ideologies in that social change needed to happen and that education was key in this occurring, they disagreed on the strategies that blacks should employ for social and economic progress. Born into slavery in 1856, Booker T. Washington was a well known and respected leader in the black community and founded the Tuskegee Institute, an institution that trained African Americans in agriculture and industry and promoted the economic progress of the black race. In his Atlanta Compromise speech, he became the most recognizable African American in the United States when his speech urged blacks to accept segregation and disfranchisement and work towards progress in business and technical education. Put simply, Washington emphasized that if blacks accept disenfranchisement and give up working for social equality, then their white leaders would support them. W.E.B DuBois
