The origins of the NAACP

We have just looked at speeches by Booker T Washington and W.E.B. Dubois, political rivals who differed on issues of gaining equality. Washington stressed education believing that equality can be reached first through economics while Dubois tried to achieve equality by legal action. The NAACP was aligned with Dubois' strategy and in turn Dubois supported the NAACP. Washington criticized the NAACP and wished its demise.
