What might Zora Neale Hurston have to say to W. E. B. du Bois on the subject of desgregation? He to her? What might Hurston wish to say to Booker T. Washington on the same subject? He to her? Zora Neale Hurston, against her promise to God and respectable characters (such as bishops), spoke out against the desegregation of schools. She stated that African Americans cannot succeed or be educated in a system which does not want nor tolerates them. "How much satisfaction can I get from a court order for somebody to associate with me who does not wish me near them?" (Hurston 202). She would agree with W.E.B. Du Bois in that there is no need for segregation because there are adequate African American-only schools, and that even so they are still on the rise. She even goes to the extreme of saying that the ruling was an insult. For the most part, she would agree with Du Bois. Du Bois would go on to emphasize that a segregated education for the African Americans would be more beneficial in that it promotes a better learning environment.

What students are saying

    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.
