Examines debate between Booker T. Washington and W. E. B

Examines the debate between Booker T. Washington and W. E. B.
Using the primary texts supplied, write a 750-word essay (points will be deducted for more and less than 750 words) that examines the debate between Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. You should identify the authors’ main point, examine how they defended their positions.

Your paper should conclude by explaining why some contemporaries of Washington and DuBois may have found certain arguments compelling, while others found them offensive (to conclude effectively, you will need to explain the historical context in which these texts were written, based on what you have read in the Hine, Hine, and Harrold text and learned in class discussion).  

No secondary sources, other than the Hine, Hine, and Harrold text, should be integrated into this paper's analysis. See Blackboard for the primary sources. Goals of this Paper:The purpose of this assignment is to advance your ability to reason through a specific historical question and to express your ideas in writing.

Thus: Your paper should briefly introduce your paper's topic or question and provide a thesis statement. In a paper of this size, your introduction and thesis statement should appear on the first page, in the paper's first paragraph.


Your paper should show that you reasoned through the evidence in a fair-minded way. In other words you should state (paraphrase) what your evidence says and not what you wish it said or think it should say. You need to state the evidence fairly, even if you think it wrong or offensive.


Your paper should use evidence to answer the historical question. You need to explain how the evidence answers the question. The easiest way to figure this is to think through your evidence and argument using one or more of the key concepts for this course.


Your paper should briefly explain an implication or limitation of your analysis. For an implication, you might consider how your analysis sheds light on one of the course's key terms. For a limitation, you might note which key concepts your analysis does not (or cannot) address.


Your paper should develop and organize your thoughts clearly and logically. Outlining is a necessary, but not required, step in writing a well-organized paper.


Your paper should draw a conclusion that addresses the paper's chief topic or question and that states your answer to the question or your contribution to the topic.
