1 Iankel Avila Dr. Micah Oelze AMH 2042 06 FEBRUARY 2019 According to the history we are taught on a daily slavery was abolished in the United States by the Emancipation Proclamation in the year 1863, by former President Abraham Lincoln. However the struggles that african americans had to endure could barely differ from being treated as a slave. In this essay we will be speaking about various scenarios that led throughout slavery and a period of time were segregation and discrimination were seen as a normal thing. We will be analyzing how people fought to get equality and how even though fighting for the same thing there were different point of views, such as the views by Booker T Washington and W.E.B Dubois. Apart from a small background story we will also be providing a clear connection on how the great american artist Aaron douglas paintings agreed more with W.E.B Dubois point of views rather than Booker T.

He used to work in a coal mine and study during night, he then got admitted into a school were he would put his knowledge to good use, he started from the bottom and worked hard with blood ,sweat and tears to go up in the ranks of a white dominated society. He proved that by being allowed to give speeches in big conferences. Washington had a very narrow point of view when it came to discrimination and equality.

    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.
