With the publication of this book, DuBois took the leadership in the struggle against Booker T. Washington and headed the radical protest movement for civil rights for Negroes. In The Souls of Black Folk, DuBois took the position that “the Black men of America have a duty to perform; a duty stern and delicate—a forward movement to oppose a part of the work of their greatest leader.” In W.E.B. DuBois novel, The Souls of Black Folks, he speaks on the pros and cons of Washington’s good deeds. In the chapter titled, “Of Mr. Booker T. Washington and Others”, DuBois heavily criticizes how Washington states in his well-known “Atlanta Compromise” speech that Negros can only survive through submission. Washington asks the Negro people to give up three things, 1.
A New York Times review states, “Black Mixtape tells a story of defiance and pride, it is also a tale of defeat, frustration and terrible destruction.” Whites viewed the Black Power Movement as a revolution; Blacks viewed the Black Power Movement as a fight for recognition as humans and as a race. Furthermore, the Black Power Movement was a political movement aimed to protect Black people from police brutality and encouraging black pride. It is interesting that the film also incorporates images from the Attica Revolution; New Yorkers don’t speak of the horrific events that occurred that day.

In this writer’s opinion, there so much to do in the fight for the full realization of the rights of African Americans in modern society. There are still are racially motivated police killings and African-Americans are still discriminated in many walks of life. I believe that the Movement should focus on the root problems of discrimination and unite to destroy them any means necessary. I also believe that they should reject working through the legislative system to solve these problems, instead embracing direct action to achieve their
They are determined to put an end to whatever might cause their mistreatment. “The black lives matter” campaign is a great example of one of these movements that have been impactful by standing up for themselves and calling out the problem. These problems occur across race, ethnicity and gender. Equality and fair treatment should be ethical and consistent among anyone in a position of that
This pamphlet was one of the first signs of the new abolitionism.

The need for blacks to have their own so called justice against prejudice in a nation they felt were not supporting them in becoming an equal part of a world which had struggled for the rights of blacks since slavery. The Black Panther Party for Self Defense were perceived as a militant organization unlike the Ku Klux Klan. Many of those in political power felt that the panther’s organization was the next uprising for blacks following Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X for civil rights. Huey Newton followed the approach of Malcom X in trying to achieve that all black were self-contained and become a working product of society.
Robert Thurston’s book, Lynching: Mob Murder in Global Perspective, depicts the causes and motives, which sparked these killings. Lynching occurred globally from time periods dating back to 1880. There is no moral way to justify the murder of African Americans who were hung in crowds as people watched them die. The Tuskegee meeting defined lynching as any illegal killed by a group, usually of three or more people, acting under the pretext of service to justice, race, or tradition.
There was a group founded in 1996 called “Black Panthers”. It was a U.S. African American militant party who used self-defense against the local police. They grew to espouse violent revolution as the only means of achieving black liberation. This is similar to the “Black Lives Matter” protesters, but they wanted a more peaceful protest. They both are dealing with our cruel police who are killing African-Americans, and getting away with it instead of helping them.
