Race during the Gilded Age

http://digitalexhibits.libraries.wsu.edu/exhibits/show/2016sphist417/race/dalvin-williams-yarbrough

This article talks about the two men that played a very special role in the Gilded Age. W. E. B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington  made very large contributions to the African American community. Both disagreed in ideas. Washington believed that African American americas will gain civil rights once they take a higher role in economy. W.E.B Du Bois believed that "ceaseless agitation" was the only way to gain equal rights. This article seems to agree with both men, he believed that because of the both men major contributions where made to the movement towards equal rights for African Americans. I agree with the writer I think that both men contributed to the moving towards equality. Both men made great advantages wanting a higher education for African Americans
