William was a black civil right activist whose views contradicted Booker T. views, “Although he admired Washington 's intellect and accomplishments, he strongly opposed the position set forth by Washington in his Atlanta Exposition Address (“ushistory.org”)”. This shows how William stood up for what he believed for and what he thought was right.

Booker T Washington PBS”)”.
Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were both respected ministers and established leaders of the African-American people. Although most whites often say that they were "like oil and water", these two men, how different they may have seemed to be, had the same goal: They wanted to end exploitation, discrimination and racism. Both had been deeply influenced by their fathers, especially by their religion and attitude towards whites. Malcolm emerged from the black underclass in the northern ghettos to a spokesman for the poor blacks, following the teachings of Islam and holding on to black nationalism. He demanded justice and that African-Americans should be respected as human-beings.

Being a leader doesn’t mean being a President or a Vice President, people like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass made a huge impact on the abolitionist movement, and they were fugitive slaves!
There was a politically correct remembrance of the Confederacy in that men felt so strongly about their beliefs they were willing to wage war and die for them, many felt that should be honored. My own understanding of the South’s passion with the Civil War is much like Tony Horwitz, In that the War is so intriguing and interesting because it involves the country I live in and the beliefs that are so passionately felt to this day. Born and raised in California I believed racism to be dead and the surprise I received moving to the panhandle of Texas was discomforting. The Civil War has a unique way of luring

James Harvey criticises Johnson’s attempt to deal with black unemployment. He does this by discussing the impact of the high profile appointments of Black Americans. Harvey believes that Johnson had used this to showcase the work he was doing for the movement. This can be seen as Johnson had appointed ‘revolving door’ negroes - who were deemed as ‘Uncle Toms’ or not seen as a threat to the body politics - to powerless roles, but ensured that they were highly visible at all times. This is exemplified by the appointment of Thurgood Marshall as first black Supreme Court judge in 1967.
